While most porn stars are prolific in the bedroom, one is becoming prolific in the cellar...the wine cellar.

Her name is Natalie Oliveros, but she's better known as Savana Samson to her horny followers, and she's winning over wine aficionados with her tasty vino.

It's something she takes very seriously.

"'Haha. Porn star wine? Give me a break!'" was the reaction Savana said she got.  "And suddenly was like oh, wait a second. Don't knock it 'til you try it!"  
 
Oliveros landed one of the top Italian winemakers, Roberto Cipresso, to help her with her project, then quickly garnered a rave review from fastidious wine guru Robert Parker, who gave her Italian red wine, Sogno Uno, a score of 90 to 91 out of 100.

Parker has been called the most influential wine critic in the world, and a score of 90 to 95 denotes "an outstanding wine of exceptional complexity and character.”

Savana is in Fort Lauderdale shooting a movie -- a real movie -- and she hopes her wine will bring her to the mainstream.

She also hopes the success of her wine label will help rekindle relations with her parents, who disowned her for entering the porn business.

"Even my parents feel...they are proud of the wine and they can finally speak highly of me again," she said. "I am very proud of my wine."
