Post Malone‘s manager has said that the rapper’s new rosé wine was partly inspired by his friendship with actor Mark Wahlberg, who helped Malone “acquire [a] taste for expensive wine.”
Malone launched the Provence-made rosé wine, ‘Maison No. 9′, earlier this year, saying at the time that “rosé is for when you want to get a little fancy.”
In a new GQ profile about the launch of ‘Maison No.9’, Malone and his manager Dre London spoke about the origin of the project, with the latter recalling: “This was an idea that came out while we were tipsy on wine and talking like a Wolf Of Wall Street bull.
“But I’ll be real, I remembered that moment and I reminded everyone the next day!”
Asked why they chose to make a rosé, London revealed that Malone’s friendship with Wahlberg (a self-proclaimed “wine hoarder”, as the profile notes) part-inspired the choice.
“[Malone] always drank wine, but not as much as beer,” London said. “But he started having this acquired taste for expensive wine after he and Mark Wahlberg hung out too much!”
