Finnish/Dutch symphonic metallers NIGHTWISH have launched their own wine called Imaginaerum, named after the band’s latest album and upcoming movie.
A new promotional clip for the wine, featuring the “NIGHTWISH way explanation for the typical wine term,” can be seen below.
Commented NIGHTWISH mainman/keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen: “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!”
Imaginaerum wine is sourced from some of the most prestigious vineyards in central Spain. Its grapes originate from vines that are up to 100 years old and are growing at high altitudes in stony gravel soils. Old vines, almost no water and poor soils have resulted in a ridiculously low yields but grapes with super intensive aromas. 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.
