Celebrity Wine News

AckI’m an absolute sucker for these kinds of stories. Not because I tend to be a star struck type, but because it really helps to have a celebrity stand up and say "Wine is Good"…even if it’s for purely business purposes.

So it is that Dan Aykroyd of Saturday Night Live, Blues Brothers and cinema fame has invested $1 million in a Canadian winery company with the hopes of getting more Canadian wines on shelves and making a buck.

Now, think about this. Wouldn’t Dan be a great choice to play Orson Welles in a BioPic. He’s got the girth, or at least did and if you throw a beard on Dan, well…you’ve got Orson. Now, you’ve just got to have a scene in that film of Orsen/Dan doing the "We will sell no wine before its time" commercial…and getting it wrong, and having to do it over and over again.

Three cheers for Mr. Aykroyd.
