Lady Gaga isn’t able to raise a glass to celebrate her upcoming wine line just yet. The 31-year-old was preparing to drop a line of signature wines inspired by her family’s restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, but the process is being stalled because of a name conflict. Officials from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office have suspended Gaga’s application for her brand, called “Joanne Trattoria Vino Rosso,” because they claim it would cause confusion in the marketplace with a company who has already acquired the rights to the term “Trattoria” in 2015. Gaga may now be forced to rename her forthcoming wine line in order to proceed.
