AC/DC makes wine

As ridiculously happy as I was when one Japanese customer paired my wine with AC/DC’s “Let There Be Rock”, I was more than a little surprised to see the band was actually teaming up with a winery in Australia to release some AC/DC wines.

Soon, wine rockers around the world will be able to get a taste of the Barossa and Coonawarra regions of Australia with clumsy names like “You Shook Me All Night Long Moscato” and “Highway to Hell Cabernet Sauvignon”.   I’m sad that people won’t need to pair my wine with AC/DC anymore (assuming they’ll pair AC/DC music with AC/DC wine from now on).  But on the other hand, I could never pull off the sleeveless hard rock thing.

Hopefully fun gimmicks like this can get some decent wine into the hands of people who normally wouldn’t be drinking wine.

AC/DC can be a gateway wine for people. 🙂

It has recently come to my attention that a lot of Japanese people are talking about my wine without popping into my google alerts.  It’s probably related to the differences in language.  Even though they usually write the brand in roman characters, there are often kanji suffixes or other weird linguistic quirks (e.g. o’vineyardsは).

Anyway, I did some active searching and found a lot of people talking about the wines.  A few highlights:

A music and wine blog that pairs my Mediterranean Mojo with AC/DC ‘s smash hit LET THERE BE ROCK.  Needless to say, I am very pleased with this pairing.

A little tweeted tasting note. I’m ridiculously fascinated by reviews I cannot read. Google translate’s best effort approximates the review to “good easily”. Love it. Love that people are out there tasting the Mediterranean Mojo 2006.

And then there’s e-American. An online shopping site that offers deals on my Mojo.

But the big player online is Rakuten who are an enormous online retailer. They bought out PriceMinister earlier this year.  And they put together this amazing banner that shows the Japanese are as enchanted as we are with the medieval Cité de Carcassonne.

  3. Look out for the second road on your right, Avenue des Cévennes which curves up hill (about 1km) to Avenue de la Montagne Noire on the left.
  4. At the last juction, bear left. the road sign “Ave de la Montagne Noire” (confusing as it seems to show a right turn)
  5. After another 500m you will see our red brick color building in the middle of the vines.
