For Those About To Sip – We Salute You

Editor’s note: This news item was submitted by our L.A. correspondent Randy Fuller, who drinks wine all the time and writes a cool blog of his own, Now and Zin.

Baby boomer rock’n’rollers are exploring wine as an additional revenue stream these days. The California Bordeaux blend Doobie Red is spearheaded by the Doobie Brothers longtime manager B.R. Cohn, while Whitesnake Zin bring the ’80s hair band back into the spotlight.

Tool and Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan makes Arizona wine under his Caduceus label and Dave Matthews has his Blenheim Vineyards right outside his Virginia recording studio. Sting produces Chianti at his Tuscan estate.

Now, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees AC/DC have joined forces with Australian winery Warburn Estate for a national release of AC/DC The Wine. This rockin’ vino is sourced from Australian wine regions in the Barossa and Coonawarra. The line will include Back in Black Shiraz, Highway to Hell Cabernet Sauvignon and You Shook Me All Night Long Moscato. What, no Whole Lotta Rosé?

  1. ACDC stick to the same formula but it is a winning one and gives one the chance to play some air guitar
