Zeppelin Winery offerings

Ladies, gentlemen and fruit flies; friends, family, fans, and stalkers, here is a list of current and near-future Zeppelin Winery swill . . . no, this does not include Red Zeppelin Winery wines, for which you should email me at, as the shopping cart for those wines is Still Under Construction (and not by me).

2011 Zeppelin Dry Rose, Paso Robles (aka Pink Zeppelin) 70% Grenache Noir, 20% Syrah, 10% Other Rhone Varietals. 57% Gill Vineyard, under 1 ton/acre, 43% Hall Ranch.
$180/12 plus shipping

2011 Chateau d'Abalone Grenache Blanc, Paso Robles. Dry, not sweetened like a certain well-known Santa Barbara wine. 20% Viognier. 100% Hall Ranch, avg 2 tons/acre.
$180/12 plus shipping

2010 Zeppelin Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petite Sirah. My first Cabernet in three years, bigger but less tannic than its predecessor. To be released soon, though not April 1 as you would suspect me of some amateur prank. Kind of expensive, though not horridly so.

Under the Influence

This is how Meth Leppard songs are played: under the influence of Black Zeppelin.

Love the blur.

Our Spokesmodels

The emergence, and partial release, of the latest Black Zeppelin wines, was more than enough unreason to arrange a photo shoot and recording just around the corner from the Zeppelin Wine Hangar, at Mordor Studios - a location about to be undisclosed. Behold our spokesmodels, the fine gentlemen of the greatest rock and roll band you will ever hang out in the parking lot with . . .

Oh wait, wrong picture. I meant these guys!

Photographic evidence of last week's Southwestern trek: Luke attempting to get wi-fi near Moab. (Just kidding, he did a daily self-portrait from his computer with different backgrounds).

In Telluride, with Supergirl.
