Rock N’ Roll Wine

‘Wines That Rock’ have put out wines inspired by The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd.  Co-Founder Ron Roy has put together ‘Forty Licks Merlot’ and ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon Cabernet Sauvignon’.  Sounds pretty interesting.  I just hope the quality is as good as the albums they represent.  Their site is Wines-That-Rock so check it out if you want to order.
