Basketball player Dwyane Wade is the latest celebrity to launch his own wine line.According toSports Illustrated, the 33-year-old Miami Heat star launched his label — simply titled «Wade» — while on a press tour in China this weekend. While there are few details available about his line, the athlete posted an image of the bottles on Instagram and it appears to be a varietal of red wine. It’s unclear if the bottles are currently available for purchase.

Several years ago, Wade opened two D. Wade’s Sports Grills in Florida, but they only lasted for a few months. Shortly after, he was sued by two groups of investors for $150 million for walking away from the two restaurants (and a charter school operation for inner city kids).

The 33-year-old Miami star, who will stay with the Heat after signing a one-year, $20 million contract earlier this month, follows with the launch in the footsteps of former professional athletes like ex-New England Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe and former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming, who both recently started their own wine labels.

Wade hasn’t disclosed the wine’s varietal, and it’s unclear if the wine is yet available for purchase. China produces the seventh-largest amount of wine of any country in the world, though, according to the International Organization of Vine and Wine. So Wade’s Chinese fans could be well-suited consumers.
