The Canadian Grammy award nominated pop punk singer Avril Lavigne has become a connoisseur of wine. Ironically enough her name actually means “April Vine” translated from the French. Lavigne has also fledged as an actress – she made her film début in the animated film Over the Hedge and has appeared in Sabrina the Teenage Witch, performing Sk8er Boi with her band as well as acting in the Richard Gere film The Flock. She also wrote and recorded the song Keep Holding On for the Eragon soundtrack with Dr Luke as well as recording the theme song for The Sponge Bob Square Pants movie.
The singer now enjoys spending evenings in sampling rare bottles of wine with her rocker husband Deryck Whibley.
She told American magazine Maxim, "I'm really enjoying wine now. I signed up to be on this wine list where they send you stuff that isn't sold in stores."
Last night we drank some Opus One."
