Wine Named for Grateful Dead Front Man
    #2791470 - 06/14/04 03:02 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

LOS ANGELES - The late Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia (news) was many things: musician, artist, writer, composer.

Wine connoisseur wasn't really one of them, even though J. Garcia wine, released last year, sold out its first shipment of 22,000 cases in just 30 days, according to the Clos du Bois winery, which is producing it with the approval of Garcia's estate. A second batch of wines, more than 30,000 cases of merlot, zinfandel and cabernet sauvignon, recently arrived in stores.


"Quite honestly, Jerry was not really a big drinker," said Grateful Dead biographer and longtime Garcia friend Dennis McNally. "But he did have his occasional glass of wine."


Garcia, who died of a heart attack in 1995, also had a somewhat tenuous relationship with Sonoma County, where the wine is produced.


"Sonoma County is where Jerry dropped out of high school," McNally said with a chuckle.


He surfaced fairly soon afterward in a jug band in Palo Alto that eventually changed its name, electrified its acoustic instruments and helped change popular music.


Renowned initially for his music, Garcia began to gain attention toward the end of his life for his abstract paintings, and examples of the latter are included on each bottle of wine.

Hmmm....interesting. I hope they are doing it to honor him and not just make money off of his memory. And he didn't die of a heart attack like they say in the article, he died of sleep apnea. He quit breathing in his sleep. Thanks for sharing the article, KOTT. And beautiful picture of Jerry! :heart:

key words are "with the approval of Garcia's estate"

depends on which faction of his estate?

If you're not a fan, just steer clear of posts on the topic, it's as easy as that!

they've had a grateful dead wine out for awhile, but it was de-alcholed wine,  it was more a novelty item, rather than something you would drink... my buddy found it at a $1 store once, and got like 10 of them....  the new stuff is actual wine, with jerrys art on the bottle.

Slapping Garcia's name on a bottle of wine is Simply MARKETING, no more and no less!

SUre it helps if the wine is good, but with millions of dead heads running around it wouldn't really matter how good the wine is; they would simply snap up all the bottles until they are gone.

You could put Garcia's name on a bag of dog crap and it would sell.
