Wine and Porn

Ah, wine and porn... So the two finally found a way to have, umm, an intercourse, so to speak.

Natalie Oliveros, the Vivid porn star known as Savanna Samson (“The New Devil in Miss Jones”), has just launched her new wine venture with a wine she calls Sogno Uno (Italian for “Dream One”). The Tuscan red wine was crafted for her by noted winemaker, Roberto Cipresso. Cipresso is based in Montalcino and produces Brunello from his family’s La Fiorita estate, but is perhaps more well known these days for his winery venture in Argentina, Achaval-Ferrer (check our wine listing).

Oliveros and Cipresso developed the wine together and the final blend for the 2001 release is 70% Cesanese, 20% Sangiovese, and 10% Montepulciano. Just 409 cases were ordered by Oliveros and it’s expected to retail for $38 a bottle.

Endowed with her show business experience, Oliveros has wasted no time in promoting her wine in the right circles. It’s reported that she has already gotten powerful wine critic, Robert M. Parker, Jr., to taste her wares. Apparently, Parker enjoyed the experience, as he found it “opulent and luscious”, and gave it an outstanding rating of 90-91 points. However, it was not reported how many seconds it took to finish.

With all the advanced accolades her new wine is getting, it appears that Oliveros is on her way to a highly successful second career, an opportunity much desired by porn stars. As the slogan goes in her hit film, “I Love This Business”: “A hard job is good to find”.
