Newman's Own -- wine

What's missing from this shopping list?

Pasta, steak sauces, salad dressing, lemonade, salsa, lettuce mixes, spinach, carrots, pretzels, cookies, popcorn, candies, olive oil and vinegar, dried fruit, fair trade coffee and pet food.

If you guessed wine, you'd be in agreement with film star and entrepreneur Paul Newman whose Newman's Own line of food and drink items has donated more than $200 million to charity since its inception in 1982.

The Westport, CT-based company is adding wine to its product list with a December bottling of a California chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon in a partnership with the Rebel Wine Co. Rebel itself is a collaboration between Trinchero Family Estates, whose brands include Sutter Home, and Three Thieves, a company that buys grapes and finished wine to sell under its name.

"Wine was the only thing missing at dinner time. Now the meal is complete," Newman said in a statement issued by his company on Tuesday.

The wines will have a suggested retail price of $16.
