(Relaxnews) – Celebrity winemaking couple Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy, frontman for the rock band Muse, have joined FarmVille in a new online game that allows players to create their own virtual wine.

This week, “FarmVille 2: Country Escape” introduced cartoon avatars of the couple who launched their own winery Hudson Bellamy in Santa Barbara County, California in 2011.

Hudson helped create her own animated persona, giving herself sports denim overall shorts, a pair of Wellies and her trademark golden locks in loose pigtails.

In the game, wannabe winemakers can virtually harvest grapes, press, bottle and sell the Hudson Bellamy wines.

The budding home cook also offers up her recipe for Fig Burrata Flatbread.

Meanwhile, offline, Hudson Bellamy currently sells a trio of wines that include a Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé of Syrah, and Pinot Noir for between $30 to $50 USD at select retailers across Canada and the US.

A portion of sales go towards their charity of choice, War Child.

Hudson says she owes her interest in wine to her stepfather and fellow actor Kurt Russell, who has his own wine label, Gogi.

Meanwhile, it’s reported that Pippa Middleton is the latest celebrity to express an interest in the art of winemaking, having attained a certificate in wine with the Grape Experience Wine & Spirit School in California.

“FarmVille 2: Country Escape” is available on Android and iOS.
