Insider Scoop: Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary Launching New Wine Brand on QVC this Weekend
Our friend and fellow wine lover, Kevin O’Leary (aka. Mr. Wonderful from “Shark Tank”), has jumped into the wine business with his own brand: O’Leary Fine Wines. Along with his wife, Linda, O’Leary is launching a new collection of amazing, affordable wines this weekend – and we’ve got the scoop!
“My wife Linda has a remarkable palate for wine. I am always amazed how she can distinguish one region from another, new world wines from old just from the look, nose and taste. I hide the bottles and she beats me every time. A marriage based on a good wine cellar can last forever!
I took Linda with me to California and we began working with the Vintage Wine Estate winemakers. I made the decision early on that any wine I put my name on has to be spectacular, so we worked really hard on achieving that goal,” said O’Leary.
O’Leary Fine Wines launches this Sunday, April 26 on QVC at 12 p.m. ET (double check your local listings).
Join QVC host Mary DeAngelis for a live Facebook chat with Kevin O’Leary, starting on her Facebook page here at 1:30 p.m. ET on Sunday.

The O’Leary Fine Wines collection currently includes three wines:
2013 Kevin O’Leary Cabernet Sauvignon, California
Aromatics of cassis, ripe cherry, and blackberry jam are indicative of the rich flavors throughout. Toasted oak combines with velvety tannins for a soft, smooth finish.
2013 Kevin O’Leary Reserve Series Red Wine, California
Ripe, jammy flavors of raspberry and blackberry fruit are accented by delicate notes of vanilla and crème brûlée. Richly developed tannins round out the body with a hint of chocolate on the finish.
2014 Kevin O’Leary Chardonnay, California
Vibrant and fruity; bright green apple and juicy pear dominate the palate with a subtle hint of vanilla oak on the finish.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Facebook chat and QVC show this Sunday, we’ll see you there!
