Heavy Metal Icons Who’ve Turned Into Winemakers

SLAYER
Wine bottles don’t often come in coffins. They also rarely have red wax dripping from the top like blood from an open wound. Then again, Slayer, a band that screams about serial killers and genocide and also distributes a Reign in Blood cabernet sauvignon, is not your typical wine purveyor.

LES CLAYPOOL
With a voice like a deranged chipmunk’s and a band as wonderfully odd as Primus, no one raised an eyebrow when bowler-hat connoisseur and owner of West Sonoma–based Claypool Cellars named his signature rosé Pink Platypus. Like Claypool, it’s brilliantly bizarre.

MOTÖRHEAD
Hard-partying reputation be damned, rocker Lemmy Kilmister gave up his whiskey habit a few years back. Now he drinks only wine, so naturally Motörhead had to create its own. The gnarliest of the bunch, Sacrifice Shiraz bag-in-box wine, comes in cardboard styled like a vintage guitar amp.

MAYNARD KEENAN
Tool mastermind and notorious recluse Maynard Keenan would rather talk your ear off about his Arizona-based Caduceus Cellars than about his iconic alt-metal outfit. Dude even schedules tours around harvesting season. Oh, and his vineyard’s name, Merkin, means “pubic wig.”

We also had our wine expert Patrick Cappiello give Caduceus a try and he recently named it his wine of the week.
