“F1 is so detail specific and we break down every corner and path, so I partnered with our winemaker through all the steps it takes to make the perfect wine.”
The Australian native says it was actually stuck at home during the pandemic, which inspired him to make the DR3 brand work. The “3” is Ricciardo’s F1 starting number.
“[Winemaking] has always been something I was interested in, and the older I got and the more I started to travel, the more I gained a taste and appreciation for wine,” he said Rolling Stone. “I’ve also been very keen to let people know that racing isn’t everything I do. It’s my biggest passion, but I love so many other things and have other hobbies and interests. When Covid hit, I was like, ‘Okay, let’s see what we can do.’”

Daniel’s father inspired his love of wine, saying, “It was always part of growing up and it reminds me to be with my family and my father,” he shares. “It sounds silly, but wine was something for my dad and I to bond over, just like we bond over race cars. When he travels the world to see me race, we go out to dinner afterwards, talk about the wine list and it’s become another way for us to make memories together.”
The comments were very enthusiastic, mostly from female admirers. A follower wrote: “I don’t even drink wine, but I’ll buy whatever you want.”
Another wrote: “I mean, if you want to host Thirsty Thursday, all you have to do is ask.”
One of the funniest posts read: “He could sell toilet paper and I would buy it.”
