England’s beloved Delevingne sisters—philanthropist Chloe (Lady Garden Foundation), actress-model Poppy (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) and actress-model Cara (Carnival Row, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets)—are known for making a big splash, but their newest project is more of a “pop”: Della Vite Prosecco.
“In our past lives, we were definitely Italian,” said Poppy in a statement. “We love Italian culture, food, tradition and history, and we wanted to create something to highlight that love. We’ve talked about starting a business together for years, but it had to be something we could all really get behind and that was meaningful to each of us in some way. Prosecco has always been our sisterly ritual, wherever we are in our lives, and countless memories were made over cold glasses of Prosecco. It was the obvious choice and a natural fit.”
Della Vite, like the Delevingne family name, means “of the vine,” and the wines are vegan-friendly and sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards. “Sustainability is at the core of Della Vite’s values, and it was important to us to find a winery that shared those values,” said Cara. “We took our time in finding the perfect partners who understood our vision, and are so proud to have created two exceptional Proseccos that are sustainably produced and certified vegan.”
The Della Vite lineup launched in the U.K. last year and is now making its U.S. debut with two bottlings: a Prosecco Superiore DOCG ($32) from Valdobbiadene and a Prosecco Treviso DOC ($28).
“At its core, Prosecco is informal, spontaneous and free from rituals and rules,” added Chloe, a sentiment echoed by Cara in a recent Instagram post, part of a series of cheeky home videos released to promote the brand’s U.S. launch: “Prosecco is truly at the heart of our sisterhood. Or, near the heart. Maybe just under the boob.”
