Announcing the venture on Instagram.com, Union writes, "So excited about my new wine @vanillapuddinwine... It's a fun Chardonnay with hints of vanilla, super yummy and great for all occasions". She popped a bottle of her new wine during an appearance on U.S. talk show Chelsea Lately last month (Feb14) and revealed she hopes to serve it to guests at her upcoming wedding when she and basketball star Dwyane Wade exchange vows later this year (14).

Union joins the likes of Drew Barrymore, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Sting and Fergie, who have all launched their own wine lines.
