Rolling Stones Release New 50th Anniversary Wine
If you’re a connoisseur of both fine wine and rock ‘n roll, raise your glasses. Hot on the heels of their 2009 “40 Licks” Merlot, the Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a new wine.
Rolling Stones 50th Anniversary McLaren Vale is a limited edition shiraz from the award winning Warburn Estate, the same Australian vineyard that recently produced several labels for AC/DC. According to a spokesman from the vineyard, the new wine is “punchy and bold” and promised that it will “leave an impression that fans won’t soon forget”.
The Stones were one of the first rock bands to market their own wine. Since “40 Licks” was released in 2009, many other groups have followed suit, including Pink Floyd, the Police, the Grateful Dead and Queensryche.
