Pearl Jam Wine Raises $60K for Charity
Did you know that Pearl Jam was working on a signature vino? No, you're not alone! Billboard.com reports this first release came and went into our 'rearviewmirror' before many people realized it was even happening.
Unfortunately, the "Home X Away" limited edition 4 bottle sets sold out in 12 minutes but for a good cause, raising $67,500 for the band's Vitalogy Foundation. Each of the bottles featured a different label that was created by Pearl Jam's art crew and highlighted one of the cities that the band is visiting for the "Home X Away" tour, Billboard reported
Pearl Jam fanatics Mark McNeilly of Mark Ryan Winery and Trey Busch of Sleight of Hand Cellars together makeup the Underground Wine Project and were the leading forces behind the wine.
It's been reported that another 50 cases of the PJ vino will be available Aug. 8. Unfortunately for us, it'll only be available in Seattle at some restaurants near the band's hometown leg of the tour.
Anyone up for a road trip?
