Following in the footsteps of Sting, Cliff Richard and AC/DC, Lewis, former front woman of LA rock band Rilo Kiley, is the most recent rockstar to release her own wine.

To coincide with her recent studio album, The Voyager, Lewis has released a wine under the same name, according to the LA Times.

The wine, a blend of Carignan, Petite Sirah and Valdiguié, is currently only available at DomaineLA in Los Angeles and retails for $29.99 (£18) which includes a download of Lewis’s new album.

DomaineLA owner Jill Bernheimer describes the wine as: “Medium-bodied with brambly red and black fruit with a great rustic texture and some good acidity.”

“I’d describe it as a quaffing wine.”

The wine is made by Cris Brockway of Brock cellars who characterises the way he works as, “low wattage, in the sense that we have very little modern equipment.”
