LOS ANGELES—Savanna Samson will be the first performer to be inducted into the new Vivid Entertainment Hall of Fame (VEHOF) at an open-to-the-public event on Tuesday, October 25 at in New York City (61 W.37th St.) at 7 p.m.
Savanna is a New Yorker and was one of the exclusive contract actresses known as a Vivid Girl. She has won multiple awards for her work and is best known for such titles as The New Devil in Miss Jones, The Masseuse, Flasher and Looking In among many others.
In 2006, while still acting in the adult entertainment industry, she started her own wine company, SSS Wines LLC, and in 2011 she bought Fattoria La Fiorita s.r.l. Her first red wine, Sogno Uno, was awarded an “outstanding” rating of 91 by famous wine critic Robert M. Parker, who said it was “really opulent and luscious and it had a personality.” Her vintages are now sold in fine wine stores and restaurants throughout the world. To celebrate her induction into the VEHOF she will introduce guests at Vivid Cabaret to her latest, Sogno Vero (True Dream), the first wine from her very own vineyard in Tuscany. Sogno Vero is an IGT Toscana red table wine made with 100 percent Sangiovese, Brunello grapes.
“I love linking my wine with my induction into the Vivid Entertainment Hall of Fame as they are both major events in my life,” Samson said. “I will continue to produce Sogno Vero on a yearly basis and give it my all each time hoping that my fans will enjoy it as much as they do my movies.”
Plaques, photos and film clips featuring the VEHOF honorees will be displayed at Vivid’s headquarters building on Cahuenga Blvd in Los Angeles and at Vivid Cabaret in midtown Manhattan. Vivid founder and co-chairman Steven Hirsch decided to create the Vivid Hall of Fame to honor the outstanding performers who have contributed to the company’s status as a world leader in adult filmmaking for more than 30 years.
“Savanna is a woman of great talent and beauty," Hirsch said. "She has many interests and was always very professional about her acting. We’re not the least surprised that she is now successful with her wine company. We’re honoring Savanna as our first inductee into the VEHOF because she was passionate about her work with us. She loved everything about being an adult star and totally enjoyed her time with Vivid as we did with her. She continues to be a wonderful ambassador for the company.”
Fans are invited to Vivid Cabaret at 7 p.m. on October 25th to meet Savanna and to join in the celebration for her. The upscale gentlemen’s club is operated under a license from Vivid by .
