Musician, music producer, author, entrepreneur, filmmaker and philanthropist Dave Stewart can now add vintner to his ever-expanding list of achievements. Impressive resume, right?
In collaboration with award-winning Australian winemakers Mollydooker (Sarah and Sparky Marquis), Stewart has created the limited edition 2010 The Ringmaster General. Mmm! Sounds delish. Pour me a glass.
The McLaren Vale Shiraz (red wine) was created to commemorate Stewart's next self-released album, which is due in September and is also titled The Ringmaster General. The release will follow last year's critically acclaimed album The Blackbird Diaries. A bottle of the wine can be seen in the newly released video for "Girl In a Catsuit," a track from the upcoming album with special guest Orianthi.
Watch the video below.
"As The Ringmaster General, I introduce to you the incredible wine you are about to experience," Stewart says on the bottle's label. "Declarations of the most 'daring,' 'amazing,' 'spectacular' are commonly used when introducing circus performers. Sarah & Sparky to me are the Flying Trapeze artists of the wine industry and I'm so honored to collaborate with them and their 'Mollydooker Circus' to create 'The Greatest Wine on Earth.'"
Each bottle of the 2010 The Ringmaster General is priced at $125 and comes gift-boxed with a DVD documentary which uniquely captures STEWART and his various collaborators such as Stevie Nicks and Alison Krauss at work on his latest musical solo releases. A preview of the documentary can be seen here below.

We love when music and winemaking are complementary.
In other news, Stewart will hit the road to open three shows for Sugarland in April and as many in August. What a cool opening gig for him, with a country duo of all things. Love it.
