Lil Wayne has partnered with Milestone Brands and French grower Voirin-Jumeh, to create his own brand of champagne.
Halo Champagne, which Wayne introduced to the world in the video for his chart topping hit Lollipop, is set to launch later this year.
Im excited about this venture with Milestone Brands, Lil Wayne told AllHipHop.com in a statement. Champagne is for celebrating. There are so many different business opportunities I want to take advantage of it all. Im ready to put my foot in a new door.
Halo Champagne consists of four distinctive sub-brands, each with its own flavor.
Halo Brut, contains various flavors and a citrus finish, with hints of lemon cream and roasted hazelnut.
Halo Brut Vintage features a classic, creamy consistency and a stronger mix of lemon blossoms and almonds.
Halo Rose, a combination of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, offers an aroma of pomegranate, crushed raspberries, and mint.
Finally, Halo Pinnacle is a fruity Chardonnay blend, capped off by hints of lime-tree flower and roasted hazelnuts.
Waynes French partner, Voirin-Jumeh is recognized as one of the finest makers of Chardonnay-based champagne.
The company, based in the Grand Cru Village of Cramant in Northeast France, has been known traditionally for artisanal champagne making.
In addition to his new title of champagne maker, Lil Wayne is putting the finishing touches on his first feature film appearance, alongside Forrest Whitaker and Isaiah Washington in Hurricane Season.
The story focuses on a high school basketball coachs influence on a group of players in the post-Katrina New Orleans area.
The movie also stars Jackie Long, Taraji P. Henson, and Bow Wow.
