Meanwhile, back in April, Snoop Dogg entered into a multiyear partnership with Australian wine brand 19 Crimes for his own label called Snoop Cali Red.

“I didn’t grow up a wine drinker. Wine was foreign to me in my neighborhood, so I’ve probably been drinking wine for about 15 to 20 years. I was a hard drinker,” the rapper tells CNN of his wine label. 

“Old Age, Gin & Juice, Hennessy, but once I started getting intellectually together, wine started to enhance my thinking and my thought process.” he continued.  You want to go with whatever you are or wherever you’re at — and as I got older, I wanted to age like fine wine”

On his partnership with 19 Crimes, Snoop explained, “For one, it’s the brand’s first California Red, and I was born and raised here so I had to rep the West Coast.”

He added, “19 Crimes represents and celebrates second chances. We all have a past which is part of the journey and builds character,” Snoop said. 

“I wouldn’t be who I am without my past, and I appreciate celebrating folks who have reinvented themselves along the way. I’ve been able to impact others not just through my music, but through other important projects like getting our youth off the streets, and using my voice to create change which is most important,” he said. 

Snoop’s blend.is a combination of Petite Syrah and Zinfandel — with a splash of Merlot —  for a $12 offering, per CNN
