If Wines That Rock hears about a party, we're gonna be there. So naturally, Wines That Rock was in the STL yesterday for the Saint Louis Zoo's "Jammin at the Zoo" event.
About 4000 wine and animal lovers prowled the zoo grounds and the WTR wine tasting table was six people deep all night, sampling the award-winning Wines That Rock varietals. Good time was had by all.
If you live Pittsburgh, you owe it to yourself to check out this cool wine tasting / Music Listening / Food Pairing perfect combo.

Wines That Rock did its first official Tour of Texas May 19th - May 21st, visiting many Spec's stores in the Houston area. We met lots of new friends, snapped lots of photos, and had a great time!
Day 1 started in the Spec's store at 8102 Westheimer where we kicked things off in rock 'n roll style offering customers and staff members awesome tattoo's by the talented Kristi. We poured non-stop from 3 to 7 PM, introducing the Wines That Rock varietals to many savvy wine lovers. The Spec's team really helped and made the event fly by.
Day 2 got going with multiple trips to Spec's store throughout the region and ending with our tasting at the 3902 Bissonet location. The atmosphere was high energy, the video monitors and sound system kept the store rocking and the wine bottles were flying out of the cases.
Day 3 kicked into high gear with a tour of the northern most Houston Spec's stores with our tour guides Pat "I saw ELO in the 70's" Kelley and Ben "The Jet" Besio from Republic. We traveled the Houston highways meeting many Spec's wine consultants, all of who were very excited about working with Wines That Rock. Our Tour of Texas concluded with our last wine tasting at the Smith Street store...again the wine was flowing, tattoo's were inking and customers were rockin'!
Thank you Spec's for showing us that famous Texas hospitality...we can't wait to get to Austin!
Last night, members of the Wines That Rock crew were in attendance at New York's Museum of Modern Art for the Premier of ‘Stones In Exile’
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts were there to open the evening and introduce the film, which was shown in its entirety to a star studded audience. There was a fun reception afterwards, which they attended as well.
The film documents the Rolling Stones around 1971 as they are 'exiled' from the UK and take up residence in France. Keith Richards took up residence at a villa called Nellcôte in Villefranche-sur-Mer, which becomes the studio, living quarters and amazing Rolling Stones headquarters for the recording of band’s masterpiece “Exile On Main Street”.
The movie “Stones In Exile” tells the inside story of making the music in the band’s own words. Great movie. Stones Fan or not, make it your business to see this one. It reminded me of why I’m a Rolling Stones fan and really made me want to go home and break out the album. A rare glimpse into elements that make up the Rolling Stones mythos. Someone at the event commented that this film should be required viewing for all.
In attendance: Don Was, Dr. John, Jann Wenner, Jimmy Fallon, Lorne Michaels, Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen, Kristen Wiigand, Will Forte, Evangeline Lily, Diane von Furstenberg
