QUEENSRYCHE’S GEOFF TATE AND THREE RIVERS WINERY ANNOUNCE PLANS
FOR NEW WHITE WINE BLEND FOR 2010
By Dave Smith
Hot on the barrels of his sold out “Insania” red wine signature blend, Queensryche front man Geoff Tate has announced a new collaboration with Walla Walla, Washington-based Three Rivers Winery (www.threeriverswinery.com) for a white wine blend of the same name.
The new “Insania” ~ an artfully balanced offering that shines with honeydew melon, pear and apricot ~ is a classic blend of Sauvignon Blanc (78%) and Semllion (22%) that will be available early this year for an anticipated price of $25 per bottle.
Crisp and lively, the finish of the “Insania” white lends itself to an encore performance with its bright, crisp acidity, leaving you wanting more…
“Insania” (a Latin word meaning insanity, irrationality, madness) has become a labor of love for Geoff Tate, who remains deeply involved with its development and looks forward to further collaborations with Three Rivers Winery in the future.
“Wine has been an important part of my life and the creation of Insania is yet another avenue to express my creativity and give my fans something more they can enjoy,” states Geoff. “I hope to keep producing wine as long as I enjoy drinking it… and that’s likely going to be for a very long time. May everyone enjoy this new white blend.”
“Insania” is certainly off to a good start as Geoff and his red wine signature blend were prominently featured in the March 31, 2009 issue of Wine Spectator.
Cheers to “Insania” for years to come!
