(Newser) – Celebrities seem to be practically required to launch their own alcohol lines these days, and Drew Barrymore is the latest to enter the game. Her Barrymore 2011 Pinot Grigio, already available in California and coming to New York next month, won a gold medal earlier this month at France's biggest international wine competition, reports the New York Post—which also helpfully reminds us that Barrymore was an admitted alcoholic at the age of 13.

But back to the good news: According to promotional materials for the pinot grigio, Drew "has created a wine that reflects her style and personality: fresh, dynamic, and fun." Explains a partner in Barrymore Wines, "She herself is a pinot grigio drinker, and she created a wine reflecting her style. Drew made numerous trips to Italy, spent time with the facility and was involved with the wine at every level." The wine goes for around $20 a bottle, and can also be purchased online.
