They’re best friends and coworkers and, for Nina Dobrev and Julianne Hough, that’s an equation that equals “being their best” selves. “A lot of people say don’t do business with friends and family, but our experience has proven otherwise,” shares Hough when asked what it’s like to work with Dobrev as co-cofounders of Fresh Vine Wine, a less-calorie, gluten-free premium wine brand. Besides talking business, the duo recently sat down with us to chat sunscreen, skin care and the process.
What is your idea of the perfect summer party?
Nina Dobrev: “Nothing is better than an outdoor pool party, with good music playing, and all your loved ones gathered around…plus, sipping on some Fresh Vine Wine!”
Julianne Hough: “I love to host dinners outside with my group of friends. Being together with our glass (or glasses) of wine and laughing together is truly the best medicine. Fresh Vine Wine is the perfect addition to any gathering!”
What makes your wine different?
ND: “At Fresh Vine Wine, we bring the best winemaking technique and expertise to deliver a premium lower-calorie, lower-sugar, lower-carb wine, without sacrificing on taste. It’s the perfect wine offering for those looking for a balanced premium wine without compromising on taste, and not feeling like you have a hangover.”
JH: “We work with our winemaker, Jamey Whetstone, to create thoughtfully crafted wines—we pay close attention to every gram of sugar, calorie, and carb that goes into the process! Nina and I both live such active lifestyles, so we created this wine with the intention of being able to enjoy these shared experiences and the work we put in, without the sacrifice.”
What are your favorite sunscreens and skin-care items for the season?
ND: “Summer is always so kind to me because I get super tan! I like to make sure to apply SPF to my daily routine but go as minimal as possible with makeup. Therabody just came out with an amazing Theraface, that gives me the perfect skin-care routine when washing my face in the morning and evenings.”
JH: “Skin care is everything to me and is always so important, especially in the summer! EltaMD sunscreen is my go-to and has truly become my best friend.”
What’s the best thing about working with a close friend?
ND: “Literally everything! Starting a wine company with my best friend, traveling together and tasting wine…SIGN US UP! We get to call this work, and sharing these memories alone is invaluable.”
JH: “When you have great communication and a foundation of respect for one another, you get two different perspectives and are able to challenge each other in a way that just helps you be your best self. And that is what’s been incredible about working with Nina.”
What’s the worst?
ND: “When the bottle becomes empty…”
JH: “I will agree with Nina, when the wine stops flowing.”
