It's inevitable - and sometimes unfortunate - that booze and rock 'n roll often collide. But for every drunken brawl started at a Guns 'n Roses concert, there's a thousand normal fans happy to (calmly) toast their favorite musicians. And apparently, there are vineyards that like doing the same thing.
This month, winemaker Mark Beaman releases three wines inspired by his favorite albums. There's a Dark Side of the Moon cabernet with Pink Floyd's famous prism on the label, a Forty Licks merlot named for the Rolling Stones, and a Woodstock chardonnay promoting peace, love, and hints of Asian Pear. Each bottle features album art on the front, and "liner notes" about each wine on the back.
Sound like a gimmick? Yeah, totally, especially when you realize this trio of booze is sold under the moniker "wines that rock." But unlike a lot of novelty booze, this wine actually tastes good, and was created with 100% green power - only solar and wind energy.
Combine that with the chance to vote on which album should get a wine homage next, and you've got a few new reasons to raise a glass.
So Mark, how long before Plastiscines get their own rosé?
