Mary J. Blige announced the launch of Sun Goddess Wines, an exclusive collection of limited-edition wines, on Monday (June 29).

The name of the collection was inspired by Blige's childhood memories with her mother and her eternal love for the warmth of the sun.

The Grammy winner has teamed up with Fantinel Winery for the collection that will feature an Italian Pinot Grigio Ramato and an Italian Sauvignon Blanc.

"A dear friend introduced me to Marco Fantinel referring to him as the producer of the best Pinot Grigio in the world. After walking through the vineyards and tasting with the Fantinel family, I felt extremely connected to the place, and more importantly, the people," Blige said in a press statement.

She added, "In that moment, I felt the same magical energy I have long tried to capture from the sun and knew this was an incredible opportunity to partner with someone who shared that passion and together we could try to create something that evoked that feeling."

"We are thrilled to partner with Mary on these exquisite wines," said winery CEO Marco Fantinel. "From day one, it was clear she shares our philosophy for producing wines of the highest quality, authentic expressions of our land, dedication and craftsmanship, and we could not think of a better partner and collaborator to bring customers these beautiful new wines."

Both wines in the collection retail for $19.99 each and are available for pre-sale on Wine.com and will be available nationwide in August.
