Train Becomes Latest Band With Wine Label

September 20, 2011

Rock band Train becomes the latest musical group to launch their own wine line. Their first product is the "Drops of Jupiter" 2009 Petit Syrah, made as a collaboration with Concannon Vineyard. Their company is called the "Save Me San Francisco Wine Co."

"My name is Jimmy Stafford. I'm in the band Train and I happen to like wine. I don't have a particular favorite wine, but I'll never turn down a great Petite Sirah. That is why we created this fruit-forward, instantly lovable red. The minute you uncork the bottle, the boysenberry fruit leaps from your glass. With soft, supple tannins, this wine is great with food or without. And I like it at cellar temperatures to allow the flavors to evolve in the glass," the band's guitarist wrote

A portion of the wine's sales will benefit Family House, an organization that provides temporary housing for seriously ill children.
