WineBusiness.com Rock Stars and Wine? John Lodge of the Moody Blues is the latest of a handful of rock stars to release his own wine, though in this case, the wine has been cellared for a few years. An unassuming Lodge presented the wine to the public for the first time yesterday - Tuesday afternoon, and signed some bottles for fans too. The wine is called Krisemma, named for his children Kristen and Emma. It was made in Napa Valley by Joe Bob Hitchcock and Behrens & Hitchcock Winery. Krisemma is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, a big, powerful Bordeaux style blend. That event at Wellington’s Wine Bar in Sausalito coincided with the Moody Blues Tour, which is selling out. Last night they played the Marin Center in San Rafael and performed many hits, including “Nights in White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Ride My See Saw,” “Isn’t Life Strange,” “The Story In Your Eyes,” “Question,” and “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band).” Here’s a clip from yesterday’s KGO-TV newscast about them coming to the area and about John’s wine.
