Kathie Lee Gifford, a former spokesperson for Carnival Cruise Line, has become the latest star to get into the wine business, with her GIFFT Collection of wines now available fleet-wide on Carnival’s 24 ships

Well-known as the host of the Today show, Gifford featured in  Carnival TV ads the 1980s with slogans like: “If You Could See Me Now” and “Ain’t We Got Fun?” Her red blend recently got a 91 out of 100 rating in Wine Enthusiast magazine and the Chardonnay scored 88 points. Both were created in consultation with Scheid Family Wines—one of the largest vineyard owners in California’s Monterey County.
