Published:  23 July, 2008

A rapper is launching his own Californian wine brand.

Hip-hop star Lil Jon has launched the label Little Jonathan Winery which includes a Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles, a Chardonnay from the Central Coast and a Merlot from Monterey County.

He told the Associated Press: "It kind of came out of nowhere. We were just going to do some private label stuff [for parties] and we did it, and people was like, 'Hey, it's pretty nice'".

He added: "I'm not like an expert, so don't ask me no questions ... I just like the taste".
