Grammy Award-winning rockers Train are to pop the cork on their own wine.
The trio has been giving fans wine tips for years through an online club and now they’re hoping to serve up their own tipple, named after the hit Drops of Jupiter.

The petite Sirah wine will be available from Train’s online wine club and other outlets from next week.

It has been produced by the group’s wine company, Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co.

Guitarist Jimmy Stafford tells, “We’re not really trying to get into the wine business or anything… We’re trying to create just this little vibe, where people come to our shows, bring a picnic basket and bottle of wine.”

A portion of the proceeds from sales of the wine will benefit the Family House charity in San Francisco, which provides temporary housing to the families of sick children.
