Reese’s Rosé! Reese Witherspoon Partners with SIMI Winery on New Wine Inspired by Her Book Club
The Editor’s Collection Rosé is available now, and “pairs beautifully with good conversation, books and many favorite book club snacks,” SIMI Winery and Reese’s Book Club said
There’s an exciting new chapter in SIMI Winery’s novel partnership with Reese’s Book Club.
The Sonoma County company announced on Monday the introduction of the Editor’s Collection Rosé, a new rosé created in collaboration with the beloved book club established by Hello Sunshine founder Reese Witherspoon.
Described in a release as “an elegant, pale pink, medium-bodied blend with light fruit flavors for a dry, Provence-style wine,” the Editor’s Collection Rosé was developed by SIMI’s female-led winemaking team and “the heroines of Reese’s Book Club” over the last year.
“Together, our teams collaborated on all aspects — from the liquid to the label design — to create an offering truly reflective of what our readers are looking for that also naturally pairs with a good book and great company,” Hello Sunshine CEO Sarah Harden said. “The Editor’s Collection Rosé exemplifies the quality and thoughtful craftsmanship behind both of our brands and will be a focus [of] many chapters to come.”
The premium adult beverage “uses the best pinot noir grapes sourced from throughout California,” the brands said, and “pairs beautifully with good conversation, books and many favorite book club snacks.”
SIMI Winery and Reese’s Book Club first made headlines with their working relationship back in November 2021, launching the Editor’s Collection — a box set retailing for $45 that featured two wines (a Sonoma County Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon) as well as a personal note from the Oscar winner.
The Editor’s Collection Rosé will retail for $18.99 a bottle, and is available nationally and on the SIMI website. A portion of profits will benefit the Readership, the Reese’s Book Club collection of efforts to support literacy.
“As a partnership rooted in celebrating narratives that place women at the center, we could not be more excited to turn this next page together,” added Mallika Monteiro, an EVP of Constellation Brands, the parent company of SIMI Winery. “We believe the launch of the Editor’s Collection Rosé really delivers on all key rosé trends: a celebrity collaboration, an American-origin product created by a world-class, female-led winemaking team and a fan-favorite Provence-style wine that over-indexes with female audiences.”
Disney Unveils Projects From Eva Longoria, Reese Witherspoon & The Russo Brothers For Disney+ & Disney Junior
Disney Branded Television is expanding its development slate with three new projects — Paolo Santiago and the River of Tears, a live action original series based on the novel, from Eva Longoria for Disney+; Tiny Trailblazers, an original animated series from Reese Witherspoon, who also will star, for Disney Junior; and Superfudge, an original animated movie based on the book, from The Russo Bros for Disney+. The projects were announced Monday [Feb 7th] as part of Disney Branded Television’s Winter TCA presentation.
Disney Junior is developing Tiny Trailblazers, an animated Original Series, produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine with Disney Junior.
Geared towards kids aged 2-7, the entertaining stories model positive attitudes about the great outdoors and highlight the importance of environmental conservation and wildlife protection. Partners from National Geographic are consulting on the project.
Witherspoon (Little Fires Everywhere, The Morning Show) serves as executive producer and will voice one of the mom characters, Fern, a wildlife specialist. The main characters are two girls, an adventurous city kid named Tilly and the more risk-averse Birdie, who befriends her when Tilly’s family moves to a campground while her scientist mom is doing field research on forest streams. As the girls observe their mother’s careers and interests and begin to explore and discover the magic of nature all around them, they develop a supportive friendship and a deep understanding of and appreciation for the natural world. The series also highlights age-appropriate social and emotional lessons about thoughtfulness, self-esteem, good instincts and trying new things.
Claire Curley also executive produces with Witherspoon.
Earlier this week Reese announced that she has written her first children’s picture book, and that it will be released later this year! The character of Betty is based on herself as a child, and her dog companion is obviously based on her old dog!
Reese Witherspoon’s First Kids’ Book Is Inspired By Her Own Adventures: ‘I Was Always Singing, Dancing’ Reese Witherspoon’s first children’s book Busy Betty, which is inspired by her own adventures as a kid, will be published by Flamingo Books on Oct. 4
Reese Witherspoon is a longtime champion of reading and female empowerment — and she’s combining both interests for her first children’s book!
On Wednesday, the actress announced that her picture book Busy Betty, which is inspired by her own adventures as a kid, will be published by Flamingo Books on Oct. 4.
“I’ve been thinking about creating a children’s book with realistic young female characters since I had my daughter,” Witherspoon, 45, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “When I was a kid, I had a busy brain with a million ideas and more energy than most adults could manage so, Betty is really based on adventures from my childhood.”
Busy Betty, which is illustrated by Xindi Yan, follows a little girl who realizes she needs to give her smelly dog Frank a bath before her friend Mae arrives. “But giving Frank a bath is harder than she thought,” reads the book description, “and just when everything seems impossible, with Mae’s help, Betty learns she can accomplish anything with perseverance, teamwork, and one great idea.”
Reese attended the SAG Awards in LA last night, where she was a double-nominee for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for The Morning Show season 2. Unfortunately Reese/The Morning Show did not win any awards on the night, but its still a great honor for the show to be nominated by this Guild. Reese posed with her The Morning Show co-stars Julianna Margulies, Greta Lee and Nestor Carbonell on the red carpet and inside. Reese wore a strapless Schiaparelli black dress with a baby blue sash & train, jewellery by Cartier, with Jimmy Choo heels – she looks fabulous!

Reese Witherspoon on Acting: ‘My Performances Have Been Based on My Friends, and I’ve Never Told Them’
From Tracy Flick to Elle Woods to Madeline Martha Mackenzie, few actors have as many household names in their body of work as Reese Witherspoon. How has her acting process helped her create so many iconic roles? “It’s almost like being an anthropologist,” she says. “You are studying contemporary behavior and how people interact and then applying it to character.”
Take “Legally Blonde,” her instant-classic comedy about a sorority sister–turned–Harvard lawyer. “There’s a reason that it has stood the test of time,” Witherspoon says of the 2001 film. Remembering how she constructed Elle Woods, she says she spent time at a real-world sorority house to watch how the members behaved. She also went to a fancy Beverly Hills department store to watch customers try on shoes. All that analysis then went back into the performance.
Witherspoon’s techniques for each role vary wildly, thanks to an early start as a teen actor and a lack of formal training. As she puts it, “It’s hard for me to describe [my process], because I’ve kind of taped it together with duct tape!” After being bit by the acting bug early on in Tennessee, she began taking adult acting classes, appearing in commercials, and performing odd jobs in film production. She dropped out of school to pursue a screen career and broke out in “The Man in the Moon,” following it up with “Cruel Intentions” and “Election.” Eventually, she became a movie star; her performance as June Carter Cash in “Walk the Line” earned her a SAG Award, a BAFTA, and an Oscar.
“The way I prepare for everything is deeply personal for me,” she says, “so sometimes I have a hard time explaining to directors what I do. But it’s a deep, deep understanding of where the character comes from, what their upbringing was, who loved them, who didn’t love them. How do they walk through the world? Do they diminish themselves? Do they take up space? And so much of it comes from knowing people and watching people.
Exciting news this morning, as the Screen Actors Guild Award nominations were announced, and The Morning Show and Reese scored nominations! The show received a total of 4 nominations, for Ensemble and 3 for acting – including an individual nomination for Reese (finally!).
The show will go back to being a in-person event this year (last year was virtual), and will be held at the Santa Monica Barker Hangar on February 27th. It will air on on TNT and TBS in the US at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.

Twenty years after first uniting on “Legally Blonde,” and Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Coolidge are clocking some of the best performances of their career. As Bradley Jackson on the award-winning Apple TV+ series “The Morning Show,” Witherspoon (who also executive produces alongside co-star Jennifer Aniston) is as fearless and riveting as ever. Coolidge, meanwhile, is showing us exactly what she’s made of with her turn on Mike White’s HBO series, “The White Lotus.” Her Tanya is as left-of-center as we’d expect from the iconic comedic performer, but also shows new dramatic shades that make us love her even more.
In conversation with managing editor Benjamin Lindsay, the two longtime actors walk through their acclaimed careers, offer advice and wisdom they’ve learned along the way, and even tease the upcoming “Legally Blonde 3,” as produced by Witherspoon’s production company Hello Sunshine.
