Mom-to-be Drew Barrymore opens up about her winery in Italy, Barrymore Wines, in a new feature for Haute Living‘s October 2012 issue. The E.T. actress also talks about her excitement to welcome her first child with husband Will Kopelman.
On having children: “I can’t wait until I have my children. I love the idea that they don’t have to do something that they have no interest in, that they can do something completely opposite if they want to. I will be so surprised if they don’t want to do something involving food or wine or art, but I’ll be OK with it. I just want to build fun, great things for my family.”
On creating Barrymore Wines: “We went to Italy, we went to our vineyard, our bottling plants, we tried a lot of different wines. I’m very leery of celebrity culture….I wanted to put it out there because wine is about tradition and family. Putting your name on something and having no idea how it came about if someone else did all the work–that’s not me.”
On having the opportunity to create wine: “I love wine… I think it’s nice to do what you really love in life, occupationally and recreationally. Right now, I’m getting to do the things I love and I’m so, so happy about it.”
The baby on-the-way – reportedly a girl – will be the first child for both.
