High Voltage Wine

Ready for this? Australian Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band AC/DC is releasing their own wine.  Release of Highway to Hell Cabernet Sauvignon and Back in Black Shiraz will be available beginning this weekend in Australia.

I can’t decide whether this is another sad sell-out or great fun. I do know that I want a bottle for myself. If anybody is going to the land down under and can bring me back a bottle please be gentle with it and don’t Shake it All Night Long.

What do you think?  Sell out or fantastic?

THEY’VE sold millions of albums as one of the greatest all-time bands and now AC/DC hope to do a similar trade in wine.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees have teamed up with Australian winery Warburn Estate for a national release of AC/DC The Wine.

Sourced from wine regions in the Barossa and Coonawarra, varieties include Back in Black Shiraz, Highway to Hell Cabernet Sauvignon and You Shook Me All Night Long Moscato.

AC/DC The Wine will be available exclusively from August 18 in Dan Murphy’s, BWS and Woolworths Liquor stores.

“We wanted to make sure that AC/DC’s hometown fan base could have easy access to their rock icons’ wines,” said Steve Donohue, general manager of buying for the Woolworths Liquor Group.

“For us it was a no-brainer to make it available nationally, no-one misses out.

    I really like the fact that it will be available at Woolworth’s! I thought that was a department store! While a good Barossa is hard to find, I’ll pass but Have A Drink On Me!
