Usher: “Over time, I developed a taste for wine”
The American rapper, producer, actor and talent scout has also become a wine expert, as these comments show.
“I discovered wine relatively late on during my travels around the world. Every time I got to a different country, a hotel, a restaurant or to stay with local people, they would serve me wine that would really captivate my palate. Over time, I developed a taste for wine, so much so that I had a wonderful, large wine cellar built in my house. In fact, it’s one of my favourite places at home and I am very proud of it. I supervised work on it myself with specialists, stone by stone, vault by vault. This is where I store my real gems. I wanted a beautiful setting for these vintage treasures”.
“My favourite wines range from Caymus in the Napa Valley to Oriel Pinot Noir in Alsace, Riesling, Corton-Charlemagne and Belle Glos in Santa Barbara. When it comes to Champagne, I am a huge fan of rosé De Venoge but in my cellar I also have an extensive range of white Bordeaux”.
