Rock Star on the Bottling Line

I wish the last time I was on the bottling line, there was a handsome rock star helping me plunge those foil caps on the endless sea of moving wine bottles.

Geoff Tate, lead vocalist of Queensr├┐che, the Seattle-based heavy metal band that earned multiple gold and platinum records albums, is now headbanging out some tasty wine! When Tate isn't writing tunes, he has taken on a new role as a winemaker-in-training with winemaker Holly Turner and assistant winemaker, Andy Slusarenko of Three Rivers Winery in Walla Walla.

Last month Three Rivers winery released Tate's first wine,"Insania," a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot, 15% Merlot and 5% Malbec. Check out this video of Tate working the line. And of course, with any rock video, there is great audio.
