Behind the scenesEdit

George Lucas first mentioned Skywalker wine during Celebration V, when asked by Jon Stewart about the rarity of the name Skywalker, as an example of the name's relative ubiquity.[2]

Jon Stewart: "I always thought Skywalker name was somewhat unique? [Sic]"
George Lucas: "No, no, no, there's even the Skywalker wine."
―Jon Stewart and George Lucas at Celebration V[src]

This was likely intended as a reference to Francis Ford Coppola's Viandante del Cielo ("Walker of the Sky" in Italian) wine, which is made from grapes grown on Skywalker Ranch.[3] While Lucas also likely intended the existence of actual Skywalker wine in-universe to be a joke, Leland Chee, keeper of the Holocron continuity database, added it as a canonical beverage to the database.[1]
