Five Wines Inspired by Rock Music
Music in a bottle.

If classic rock doesn’t make you think of classic wine, it might be time to change your tune.

Lyrics from the famed Police classic Synchronicity guided the making of one of the wines in the Wines That Rock collection, a series of wines produced by winemaker Mark Beaman.

So if you want to channel your inner rocker or feel their music through a glass of vino, you’ve got five wines, each inspired by the sounds and lyrics of legendary rock, to choose from.

The PoliceSynchronicity is a red wine blend of petite sirah, syrah, grenache and zinfandel.

The Rolling StonesForty Licks is merlot.

Grateful DeadSteal Your Face is a red wine blend made of mostly syrah.

Pink FloydDark Side of the Moon is cabernet sauvignon.

The famed rock event Woodstock comes in the form of chardonnay.

Each wine, bottled by the Mendocino Wine Company is $15, made with environmentally-friendly methods and a portion of the proceeds go to the T.J. Martell Foundation.

Do you think these grapes match their rock star labels? Tell us below.
