Wines That Rock

The Official Wine of Rock and Roll? Why not? I love finding connections between my interests and rock and roll and wine rank up there.


"As passionate wine lovers and die-hard music fans, we've created the ultimate blending of two worlds. Our mission is to produce a new category of wine.

Years in the making, Wines That Rock knew it wanted to create a unique experience in the wine world. We didn’t want to just “slap” cool labels on a bottle and call it a day. We wanted to challenge our winery to produce varietals that were a great tasting, quality product that we could all be proud of...and you would thoroughly enjoy. Enter our partners at the award-winning Mendocino Wine Company who really understood our mission and helped us produce these world-class varietals. Try it for yourself…it all starts with great tasting wines!

As passionate wine lovers and die-hard music fans, Wines That Rock is creating its own category in the wine industry - “Great Tasting Wines Inspired by Music”. Wine and Music: with classic tracks from The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and The Woodstock Festival blasting in the cellar, our winemaker Mark Beaman crafted custom wines for each of these legendary artists and their timeless albums - blending one-of-a-kind wines with Rock ‘n Roll mythology.

When was the last time you saw a wine label and said “WOW” or even better the last time you looked at a wine label and music started playing in your head. Our back labels are set up just like the back of the album jacket, liner notes and all. Wines That Rock is not your typical wine experience and these are not your typical wine labels. These are tapestries from the rock vaults. Classic, iconic album art that’s part of YOUR musical DNA. Hail, Hail Rock and Roll!

One of Wines That Rock’s missions from day one was to embrace sustainable practices – let’s leave the earth a better place than we found it. Coming out of Mendocino County, our award winning vineyard leads the pack in environmental leadership. Sustainable farming, 100% green power (solar & wind), eco-friendly packaging and carbon neutrality – how’s that for starters. From the grapes to the labels, Wines That Rock operates with full respect for the planet! Our winery won the 2009 Governors Economic and Environmental Leadership Award for the second time in 3 years.

Wines That Rock is approaching the wine business in a totally new way. This is not your Grandfather's Wine Company. Wines That Rock set out to do things our own way. By crafting these great tasting wines with classic music as our muse, utilizing the tapestries from the rock vaults as our cover, and truly creating something that tastes great, Wines That Rock is out to change the boring perceptions of your typical wine. Wines That Rock is meant to be fun, a conversation starter, an eye popping party gift that makes you do a double take once you actually pop the cork and taste what’s inside. It's also the perfect complement to your meal or just what you need when you want to kick back, relax and enjoy."
