Jon Bon Jovi, son Jesse Bongiovi, and winemaker Gerard Bertrand kicked off the launch of their new rosé brand, “Diving into Hampton Water”
The event took place at the Versace Mansion during South Beach food and wine festival where 300 attendees were privy to a private acoustic performance by Jon Bon Jovi. He said, “Welcome to Gianni’s house!” referring to his longtime friend Gianni Versace before singing several of his hits (“Who says you can’t go home,” “Living on a Prayer” and “You Give Love a Bad Name”) before covering “Here Comes the Sun” and “I Put a Spell on You.” He also mentioned his past ties to Versace, having modeled for them 20 years ago.
“It is truly one of the great thrills that I have ever had.”

Hampton Water is now available if you can find it, as it is selling out fast. More cases are being air freighted from the South of France where it is made.
