NEW YORK, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Vanilla Puddin' Chardonnay was selected as the official white wine served at multitalented actress, producer and performer, Gabrielle Union and three-time NBA champion, Dwayne Wade's wedding ceremony which took place August 30th 2014 at Chateau Artisan in Miami Beach. The Chardonnay created by the actress in partnership with JaM Cellars CEO John Truchard and Los Angeles-based The Brand Elite launched in January of 2014 and according to Union was a special part of her big day.
"Dwayne and I couldn't be happier with the wedding and it was just so special to have Vanilla Puddin' be a part of it. It has really been an interesting parallel, starting a new venture and a new phase in my life at the same time. Vanilla Puddin' has been something I've worked so hard on and am so proud of and to watch it develop has truly been a learning experience. Seeing it start as these beautiful grapes on the vine and just having the idea of creating something really fun and elegant to picking out the top notes- a hint of pear, white chocolate, butterscotch and vanilla and seeing it evolve into what it's become. It has been so rewarding. I think it was just a very natural thing for me to bring it into the wedding and share that with all of the people we love."
The full-bodied Chardonnay featured during the celebration and enjoyed by the newlyweds and guests in attendance is the inaugural release from The Brand Elite (TBE) a company specializing in custom-blended wines co-branded and managed in conjunction with well-known celebrities in the entertainment and sports industries. Union was inspired by her love of wine to create a Chardonnay that was unlike anything else on the market and shared in every aspect of its creation from marketing and production to distribution.
