She recommends relaxing with a beer after one of her high-energy shows, even though her drink of choice is wine.

Now Pink, 39, has released the first batch of her own wine label.

Fans and connoisseurs will have to wait, though, as the first 114 cases sold out in a single day.

Pink, a.k.a. Alecia Moore, wasn’t always a wine fan.

‘I think every 10-year-old at Hanukkah hates wine, so, to be fair, it’s an age thing, probably,” said Pink in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I mean, we didn’t grow up with money and my mom drank terrible wine and I felt like it was a punishment.’

It wasn’t until she made it famous as a pop singer that Pink came to appreciate the finer things in life.

‘But as I was traveling and going around the world, my manager, he’s Australian, I visited a bunch of wineries there with him. [He] had really good taste and a really nice budget, and I started drinking Châteauneuf-du-Pape and I fell in love. That was the a-ha wine for me, the first one. And then it sort of just became a rabbit hole for me.’

Pink has been honing her winecraft ever since purchasing a 25-acre vineyard in Santa Barbara County five years ago with her husband, former professional motocross competitor Carey Hart, 43.

Pink name her wine Two Wolves, after a Cherokee parable about the opposing forces of good and evil and how they battle within everyone.

Prior to committing to the project, the Lady Marmalade singer’s attempts to make wine were failures.

‘I tried in my closet about 15 years ago in a carboy, and basically made poison,’ she jokingly recalled. 

The Get The Party Started singer immersed herself in winemaking classes at UCLA and discovered a new love of chemistry after having avoided the subject in high school. She also visited the great wine regions of the world, from France to Australia to South Africa and back to Northern and Central California.

Once Pink was finally ready to share her wine with the public, it almost immediately went out of stock.

The label, which currently sells online only to nine states and Washington, D.C., put all 114 cases up for sale on November 26. They were all gone by November 27. Two Wolves plans to make the next batch of wine available for online sale in April. 

Despite her busy career as a musician and performer (and now winemaker), Pink somehow keeps everything in motion.

‘It’s a lot. I feel like I have three full-time jobs,” she said. “Being a touring artist, making wine and launching a wine brand, being a mama. Sometimes I ask myself, what the hell am I thinking, but I love it all.’
