Band wine

14 Apr

Omigosh Dave Matthews makes wine. This dude:

And it’s for a good cause! Dreaming Tree sent me these wines and told me “In celebration of Earth Day, The Dreaming Tree is excited to announce their first “Buy One Bottle, Plant One Tree” program this year! From Sunday, April 15 through Earth Day, Sunday, April 22, environmental conservation partner Living Lands and Waters will plant one tree for every bottle of The Dreaming Tree Wines sold, with a goal of planting up to 80,000 trees.”

Yayyy plants! But are the wines tasty?

The Chardonnay tastes like California Chardonnay–without being too much of an oak-bomb. It has some vanilla and oak and goddamn is that a tree growing? The Cab was my fave tho, of the stuff they sent me. Like the Chard it is approachable. Don’t expect something crazzzzzzy but it is shippable and approachable: even Sean McKenzie, Dave Matthews’ “guy” just calls this approachable and I find it perfect for the price point. Uncomplicated and perhaps not perfectly balanced but totally friendly and DAMN a new tree planted plus this?!

And damn once upon a time when I was a teen I went to a bar in Paris and the Dave Matthews Band was playing and I loved watching the violin player and music live is amazing so I’m down with this guy being into wine. There is something about watching musicians perform live and when I saw DM I saw the passion.

Dave, let’s get some vino? Your wine (for the price and tree-planting) is above average for the price so if y’all want some wine that does good and is good value get the hell in. Dreaming Tree: listen and learn and just drink. Yum.
