You might know Drew Barrymore for her decades of work in front of the camera, but behind the scenes Barrymore is also hoping to become known for something else: wine.

The Californian teamed up with Carmel Road winemaker Kris Kato to make Barrymore Wines a few years ago and now they have three varietals under the label. Calling wine her 'first crush', Barrymore picked the wines that she drinks most often - pinot grigio, pinot noir, and rosᅢᄅ. "You should do what you know," she explains, "what you really like yourself."

She is aware that for some celebrities, joining forces with a product can be in name only, but Barrymore believes in being more involved. "Name-slapping is dangerous because it can be very successful for some people, but it can also have a short-lived life." Her road to wine has involved a lot of education but also understanding what she brings to the table."There is no ego to business endeavors," she explains. "I'm an enthusiast and a producer. I'm not an oenophile... I appreciate that the wines that we make are true to [my palate]".

We also got her to spill the beans on what her favorite characters might be drinking, and the answers -- ranging from Charlie's Angels to E.T. -- might surprise you! So watch the video above to hear the full interview.
