Ready for Whitesnake Wine?

Posted on Thursday, July 1, 2010 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments11 Comments

Whitesnake wine is here, people. I guess it's cool now for our Glam heroes to get into the booze business. After all, both Vince Neil and Sammy Hagar have their tequila interests...so why not Whitesnake?

Called Whitesnake Zinfandel 2010, lead singer David Coverdale says it will be "bodacious."

I'm not a wine drinker. Actually, I can't drink wine because I'm so prone to migraines and wine is a known headache trigger. Still, I will probably buy a bottle of the Whitesnake Zinfandel to place on my kitchen counter because I think it's a conversation piece. By the way, the wine is available today here in America. Other parts of the world will have to wait a little longer. Retail is $24.95 a bottle.

Here's hoping Whitesnake is back on the road next year!

Vince Neil has wine, too: Vince's Vineyards. I think it was or is only available in California.

Does anyone remember the MOTLEY BREW that came out? Did anyone ever try it? I have a bottle of it for Collector purposes but never opted to try and drink it. HELL, that blue color alone, it can't be good.

Looking forward to ordering a few bottles of WHITESNAKE Wine for Christmas Presents (yes, Christmas I said) as well as my own collection.

Anxious to try it!

Motley Brew was BLUE? Serously? that is gross.

@ Christine...yes, you're right on the Vince wine. Also, Geoff Tate has in Insania wine. I got to try a sip of that on Shiprocked. Just a sip tho - red wine nearly kills me. But, I wanted to say "Hey, I participated in a real wine tasting!"

Yes, the motley brew was gross. And it turned your pee green.

It's blue, but it makes your pee green ? Damn, that's pretty bad. Does it have Nikki's blood in it or something ?

Another blatant cash-in a la Vince with his wine and tequila, Sammy and his tequila, Tate with his vino, etc., etc.

What a shameless ploy to make a buck off of us suckers for anything Metal in an effort to make up for dwindling record sales and take advantage of Coverdale's primary target demographic (people 40 - 50 who were 17 - 27 when they bought Whitesnake's mega-platinum self titled album hit in '87 who now want to think of themselves as "grown up" "classy" wine drinkers).

Where do I buy a case?

the difference between Geoff Tate and all these others is that Tate seems to have a legitimate understanding and appreciation of fine wine, whereas these others seem to be in it for the cash grab. In reference to Metalboy's astute comment, I was 18 years old when Whitesnake's self-titled record came out in 1987. My wife and I are both major oenophiles, and I have no interest in dropping $25 on this Whitesnake zin just because coverdale is associated with it.

I have no doubt Vince has a legitimate understanding of tequila and is a connoisseur. Sammy and Vince came up with the word tequiphile to make it seems more important than it really is.

Queensryche fucking sucks.
I was happy the day in which Whitesnake replaced them on the Judas Priest concert, so at least I didn't have to listen to that lame crap.
God I hate them, one of the worst bands I have ever heard.
