Pink turned to winemaking to get her through the pandemic

The 45th E! People's Choice Awards

Pink was able to focus on her organic wine label after the Covid-19 pandemic hit.

The Raise Your Glass hitmaker admitted being in lockdown meant she could give more attention to her Two Wolves brand, as she opened up on her “three different lives”.

“With the pandemic, it was forced simplicity. My life is sort of that way without a pandemic,” she told WSJ. Magazine. “I go from a two-and-a-half-year tour to a new city every single day to being at home. And I usually go straight into harvest.

“So I have three different lives: I have this touring life, my home life, and then I make wine. The workload is huge – it’s just me and another woman who make all of this wine. I’m just a full-time mama during all of that.”

The 41-year-old star – who has kids Willow Sage Hart, 10, and Jameson Moon Hart, four, with her husband Carey Hart – makes 114 cases of wine every harvest, which typically sell out in a day.

With the music industry heavily impacted by the pandemic, Pink realised there could be a future for her primarily as a winemaker, and she started researching other dark moments in history.

“I read The Winemaker’s Wife, which was really fascinating, about Champagne and how the region participated in World War Two, and how they helped fight secretly against the Nazis by smuggling guns in barrels and all the intricate underground caves in France. It made me appreciate champagne more,” she explained.

However, Pink – whose live album All I Know So Far: Setlist dropped last month – is still working hard on her music, and even learned some new skills during lockdown.

“I learned how to use GarageBand and record myself,” she added. “For a 40-year-old girl to learn how to be alone and record for the first time in her life, it was a huge accomplishment for me because I’m usually at the whim of engineers and producers.”
