Rock and Roll – Cheers
The essence and structure of great rock music is built in layers much like the essence and structure of great wine. When I think of wine it brings images of smoky bars, gatherings of friends and family, wonderful meals, romantic evenings… funny thing is that all of those things are made better by great rock music. (Epiphany) WINE and ROCK MUSIC make a perfect combination!
When I started doing research for the connection between wine and rock music I was immediately overwhelmed. There is so much information and I wanted to include it all. Not going to happen. It would take me a year just to pull together a decent list of the information to start on. So I decided to pick one minute detail and get something down. Here goes…
I love rock and roll! When I asked Joel what he loves about rock, he said, “It makes me feel connected. Like I’m a part of something bigger than myself.” I can relate. The wine lifestyle gives Joel and me that same sort of feeling of connectedness.
Seems that the people at Wines That Rock understand that too. They have taken 3 classic collections of music and created wines based upon the spirit of those collections. The three that they have *co-created so far are 2006 Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007 Rolling Stones’ 40 Licks Merlot, and 2008 Woodstock Chardonnay.
Did These guys crawl into my head? They really get me!
I thought of about 100 albums or songs that I want them to do because they have such strong anchors to important points in my life. While surfing around on their website I found a link to vote on the inspiration for their next creation, and what-do-you-know, several of the albums that I was wishing for were on the list of possible choices. I won’t tell you what I voted for (the doors) as I wouldn’t want to influence (the doors) your vote (the doors) in any way. That (the doors) wouldn’t be right.
I will be following this exciting winery and looking forward to all their new creations.
*I wrote “co-create” in order to give credit to the creative collaboration between the musical artist and the artistry of the winemaker.
Love, Laugh, Learn… LIVE!
