Rolling Stones Wine
The world’s most raucous and, together with “The Who”, roughest and toughest rock band have long since entered the annals as legends in their own time. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts are all names like the crash of thunder; the text-book ruffians of rock history.
It’s difficult to believe that after a mere spattering of drug scandals and womanising, and scant evidence of trashed hotel rooms, the Londoners have already celebrated half a century in the business.
Nothing could be better to toast the rock 'n' roll gods than the band’s own wine, a one-hundred-percent Merlot from California. And it’s perfectly accompanied by “Forty Licks”, the ultimate Best of Rolling Stones Collection (spiced up with four new tracks). Cheers!
Of course the potent red wine also goes well with 1972’s “Exile On Main Street”, perhaps the Stones’ best album. It was created in Keith Richard’s villa in the South of France, where the Stones had taken refuge from the British taxman.
Here, in the home of top-quality wine, the Stones tongue was born, probably the most famous rock 'n' roll icon of all time. The Rolling Stones tongue, which adorns the bottle, was not in fact designed by Andy Warhol as legend has it, but by John Pasche.
Regardless: this delicious “Stones” wine will be sure to leave the pleasantest of aftertastes on the palates of true aficionados.
