Finnish symphonic metal band NIGHTWISH recently launched their own wine called (fittingly) Imaginaerum wine, named after their current album and upcoming movie of the same name.
An update from the band states: “We’re happy to announce that our very new Imaginaerum Ribera del Duero wine is now also available in UK, Spain and Portugal. Find your way to your local online wine store to take a look and order some to keep you warm.”
Nightwish mainman/keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen recently stated: “We are proud to present a new Nightwish item, Imaginaerum wine. Imaginaerum is the most imaginative wine on the planet. It’s inspired by otherworldly splendours, moments of wonderment and the joyous sound of laughter with a hint of campfire poetry, music of the spheres, and the long, smooth, star-filled finish of Lucid Dreams. It is a wine best enjoyed with the ones you hold dear. Cheers and enjoy!”

Before bottling, the wine has spent 14 months in small barrels made of French oak.
The label of the bottle is based on the song ‘The Crow, The Owl And The Dove’ from the Imaginaerum album. The mystery of the bird emblem will be revealed to anyone listening to the song with thought and a glass of Imaginaerum…
