Red Red Wine is one of the most famous booze-related songs in music history and UB40 has made history again by creating their own red, red wine.
Ali Campbell spent his adolescence harvesting grapes in Bordeaux and had always longed to launch a UB40 wine with fellow founding member and wine enthusiast, Astro.
Eminent Life – which celebrates excellence in music and the arts with bespoke, luxury drinks – has helped the chart-topping bandmates realise their lifelong dream by taking them back to a private chateau in Bordeaux, where Campbell’s wine journey first started, and researching, designing and crafting 10,000 bottles of their own, limited edition Red, Red Wine Bordeaux Supérieur.
The wine is produced from a subtle blend of classic Right Bank grapes, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, which are aged in small oak barrels for eight months.
It is a deep, red colour with blackberry notes, enriched with ripe tannins, with a long and elegant finish and can be cellared for up to 15 years.
What a way to celebrate the upcoming UB40 Tour – www.ub40.org.
UB40 Red Red Wine Bordeaux Supérieur is available worldwide at www.eminentlife.com at £28.50 for the 75cl bottle.
