Her Name Is Pink, but Her Wines Are Anything But …
The recording artist makes a bold entry in California winemaking.

What’s most surprising, or perhaps not in the least, is the intensity of her wine. Although there’s one “pink” rosé in her debut release, most of Alecia Moore’s (AKA Pink) new Two Wolves wines are red, robust rock stars.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Moore and her husband Carey Hart moved to a vineyard they purchased five years ago, taking a hiatus from music to focus on her “longtime dream” of winemaking.
“It has been one of the happiest and scariest periods of Moore’s life. ‘I’ve been in the public eye since I was 16, and this was the first time I ever had a secret,’ she says.”
“And the scary part is just beginning. On Nov. 15, Moore releases her first wines, which she calls Two Wolves, to the world: a Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. (Sauvignon Blanc, skin-fermented Semillon and other blends will come out later.) She’s an anxious wreck. “Pouring my wine for people is the most painful part,” she says. “It’s like, ‘Hi, here’s my baby, do you think she’s cute?’”
