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.
