The one and only B.B. King, known as the “King of the Blues”, is releasing a new line of signature wines under his legendary name stateside.
The red and white wines will be produced by Spain's Bodega Santa Cruz Winery, which has been producing wine for more than 60 years
Their wine heritage almost equals (but not quite) that of B.B. King in music. Beginning in 1949, B.B. King began recording and touring and he never stopped.
To date, he has won over 15 Grammy awards, performed in over 88 countries, been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and influenced musicians from Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton. Not a bad resume that.
It was during the 1991 Legends of Guitar Concert Series in Seville that B.B. King savored Spanish’s then little known wines. The memory of their depth and elegance lingered in his mind like his music does for his devoted fans worldwide.
The B.B. King Signature Collection White 2011 is, however, 100% verdejo grapes. Both wines are well suited to match with food and every day enjoyment. Bravo!
The wines will debut at the B.B. King’s Blues Clubs in Nashville, Memphis, West Palm Beach, Los Angeles, New York City, Orlando and Las Vegas.
Their release there will match simultaneous with roll-outs at quality retail stores, popular wine bars and leading music clubs across the U.S.
Fantastic - A true concert, now with wine! Thank you B.B. King!
