The profits from the vino will go to PJ’s Vitalogy Foundation charity.
Good news first: Pearl Jam have their own signature wine called “Home X Away.” Now the bad news: the whole first run sold out in 12 minutes. According to Food and Wine, the boxes of four band-sanctioned vinos were produced by the PJ fanatics Mark McNeilly of Mark Ryan Winery and Trey Busch of Sleight of Hand Cellars — known as the Underground Wine Project — with profits earmarked for the group’s Vitalogy Foundation charity.
Each of the 450 limited-edition sets came with four bottles of the Project’s Idle Hands wine, with each bottle featuring a different label designed by PJ’s art crew depicting the skyline of one of the cities (Seattle, Missoula, Chicago, Boston) the band is visiting on its “Home X Away” tour. The $150 boxes raised $67,500 for the non-profit Foundation, which works on issues including community health, the environment, arts & education and social change. The wines are described as having “layers of ripe cherries and black plums, some tobacco, toasty mocha notes and graphite characters,” pairing well with such PJ songs as “Corduroy.” MORE
