Since former Reality TV show housewife of New York, Bethany Frankel sold her "Skinny Girl Margarita" Brand for one hundred million, I am wondering what thoughts people in the world of wine have on Ramona Singer's Pinot Grigio.
Thoughts on (Reality TV) Housewives of New York, Ramona Singers' Pinot Grigio?

Yawwn. TV is over-rated.

I'd hypothesize it's just private label, run of the mill quality.

I would say that's an awfully likely hypothesis!

Would need to see the financials for the Skinny Girl brand to see where the value is coming from....

Beam Global were the acquirers
You have got to think they did their due diligence
At a rough guess in todays market
120m @ 20% EBITDA [Earnings Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortisiation] = $24m
Say marketing selling and admin costs of $16 = Gross Margin of $40m
Gross Margin % of 66 & 2/3% = Sales of $60m
Retail equivalent Say $120m after taxes and channel costs
About $12 per bottlle = 10m bottles or 1.1m cases
It could be do-able??
Remember Pernod paid somewhere around €5.6b for Absolut Vodka

Moreover, I was wondering if anyone has had a taste of the product.

I have no idea who she is as I've never heard of her in my life but if she has a following of any size, maybe they'll drink the stuff. As for a taste of it, maybe she'll look for some publicity and send some to the Snooth board members? Who knows, maybe it will be drinkable?
