Country singer Darius Rucker (better known as the former front man of Hootie & the Blowfish, Grammy’s Best New Artist in 1995 and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group) has partnered with charity organization, ONEHOPE wine, on its Signature Series. Half of the profits from this Napa-sourced Cabernet Sauvignon benefit Pattison’s Academy, a group dedicated to children with multiple disabilities.
Rock band Train launched their wine label, Save Me, San Francisco, in 2009, a year before they nabbed their Grammy for hit “Hey, Soul Sister.” In addition to a Pinot Noir bearing the name of their tune, Train also produces a Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and red blend, produced at Concannon Vineyard in Livermore, California.
In 2012, multi-hyphenate Fergie launched the Santa Barbara-based Ferguson Crest wine label with her father, Pat Ferguson. Naturally, the seven-time Grammy winner has a wine dubbed Fergulicious.
Classic rock legend Mick Fleetwood, drummer and co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, launched his eponymous Private Cellar Merlot in November 2013. The Old World-style wine is produced in partnership with Chateau Julien in Monterey, California.
