The inspiration for matching beauty and wine comes from pretty sessions with my dear friend, Ricki Lake. We’ve worked together for years, and, some evenings while blending and blushing, we uncork a bottle. When we started out, our standard sip was a bottle of Joel Gott — being single and silly we coined Joel Gott our boyfriend. Why wine and lipstick? They both make us glamorous and confident whether we’re running around town or hosting a party.
