The Charlie's Angels star teamed up with California-based distributor Wilson Daniels to create a crisp, dry and fruity white Pinot Grigio made of grapes from northern Italy.

The newly-engaged actress tells The Drinks Business, "Wine is all about the journey, the discovery of new places and new varieties. I’m excited about sharing this Pinot Grigio with my friends and family and other wine lovers."

Barrymore 2011 Pinot Grigio features the beauty's family crest and is set to hit U.S. stores later this year, with bottles starting at $19.99 (£12.49).

The 50 First Dates star isn't the only one to venture into the wine business - a slew of celebrities have launched their own ranges, among them musician Dave Matthews and rock group AC/DC.
