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.

But while some big names may spend little time monitoring the harvest, many of our rockstar winemakers are not only hands on in the winemaking process, but have won awards for their wines on the competition circuit.
