The union of urban culture and the Wine and Spirits industry has deep roots, dating back to the early 2000s. This fusion is evident in song lyrics, product placements in music videos, and celebrity endorsements. Iconic tracks like Busta Rhymes' "Pass the Courvoisier" and Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre's "Gin and Juice" epitomize this blend. A recent example of this synergy is the partnership between global superstar Brandy Norwood and Stella Rosa Brandy, the #1 imported wine brand in the U.S., to celebrate the continued success of Stella Rosa Premium Imported Brandy.

Stella Rosa Brandy is a premium collection of hand-crafted fruit-flavored Brandy made from grapes cultivated in Northern Italy. This innovative venture is a creation of Riboli Family Wines and Spirits, a company with a rich history in the industry. The Riboli Family embarked on their wine and spirits journey in 1917, establishing the boutique San Antonio Winery in Los Angeles, California. Today, San Antonio Winery is the proud home of Stella Rosa.

The Stella Rosa Brandy line boasts three distinct flavors: Smooth Black, Honey Peach, and Tropical Passion. Houston Style Magazine recently had the opportunity to attend an exclusive tasting event hosted by Stella Rosa Brandy at Houston's House of Blues Foundation Room. Enthusiastic Brandy aficionados gathered in this intimate setting to savor gourmet lite bites paired with specialty cocktails inspired by the brand.  A highlight of the event was the B Rocka cocktail, served chilled and expertly crafted with Stella Rosa Smooth Black Brandy, lemon juice, muddled blackberries, and simple syrup — making it a perfect choice to celebrate World Cocktail Day on May 13, 2024. Other featured cocktails included the Brandy Sidecar and the Stella-Jito, all showcasing the versatility of Stella Rosa's spirits.

During the event, Brandy delighted guests with a captivating performance of "I Wanna Be Down" from her debut album, 'Brandy.' Meanwhile, local DJ Supastar kept the ambiance lively with a selection of classic tunes from the singer's repertoire. Throughout the evening, Brandy exuded grace and charm, mingling with guests and posing for photos. Her presence underscored the authentic partnership between her and Stella Rosa Brandy. With Brandy's refined palate and Stella Rosa's commitment to craftsmanship, this collaboration promises to be truly exceptional.

Stella Rosa Brandy is priced at $29.99 and is available for purchase at select Spec's Wine, Spirits & Finer Foods and Total Wine & More stores.
