Musicians and wine go together like, well, a nice chardonnay paired with brie. Maynard James Keenan of Tool is perhaps the most famous musician vintner, although Chuck Berry released blackberry wine a few years ago via Missouri's Crown Valley WInery.
Now you can add classic rockers the Doobie Brothers -- which once featured St. Louis native Michael McDonald among their ranks -- to the music-branded wine pack. Sonoma, California's B.R. Cohn Winery (the establishment founded by Doobie Brothers manager Bruce Cohn) has been producing wines with a Doobies theme for several years now.
The limited-edition three-pack of 2006 B.R. Cohn Doobie Red is sold out, but the Doobie Red Collection -- a whopping 15-bottle pack which retails for $480 and is limited to 384 individually numbered collector cases -- is still available for this year's holiday season. The hefty price tag is for a good cause, though:
Doobie Red was produced in memory of Keith Knudsen, long time drummer for The Doobie Brothers from 1974-2005.
...A portion of the proceeds from this wine are donated to Veteran and other Charitable Organizations, and we are unable to offer any discounts.
And now here's a vintage 1979 performance of "What a Fool Believes." Because this song is always a win.
