Top 10 rockstar ‘winemakers’24th July, 2014 by Lauren Eads
With pots of cash and a taste for the finer things in life, it’s perhaps no surprise that many of the world’s global superstars eventually turn their attention to wine.
Dozens of musicians have lent their name to a number of wines over the years, with varying levels of involvement in their production and commercial success.
