Drops of Jupiter, Drops of Wine
Train’s music translated to wine

sfwineCall it a perfect pairing of wine and music.

Next time you want to listen to music and enjoy a glass of wine, you might consider drinking wine created by musicians. The band Train has a line of wine called Save Me, San Francisco Wine Company. It’s the band’s music translated into wine and bottled.

“Wine and music tell stories and connect those who share it. Just as a song’s message strikes a chord with so many people, our wines will transport you back to that moment.” That’s the message on the band’s wine website from Jimmy Stafford who is not only Train’s guitarist, but its self-proclaimed Lead Wine Explorer.

So if you want to drink Train and sing along to its music, you have three options:

California 37 Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 (California) $12
As big and bold as the band’s music, this is a spicy cabernet with vanilla undertones. Find it here.

Calling All Angels Chardonnay 2010 (California) $12
The producer makes 2,500 cases of this fruit-forward citrus-scented chardonnay, which could make it more difficult to get than a Train concert ticket. Find it here.

Drops of Jupiter Red 2011 (California) $12
This petit syrah-based blend might just “sweep you off your feet…” and have you singing “hey, hey…” at the top of your lungs in front of your mirror. Find it here.

A portion of the proceeds from the wine sales goes toward charity.
