QUEENSRŸCHE frontman Geoff Tate took a trip to Three Rivers Winery in Walla Walla, Washington last week to oversee final production of his latest vintage of Insania. The forthcoming release of Insania Red (2009) and Insania White (2010) is set for March 15 and marks the third vintage. The wine will be available for order beginning today, March 1, on the QUEENSRŸCHE web site at www.queensryche.com.
Three Rivers Winery is offering a $10 shipping rate on all six bottle purchases and free shipping on all "case plus" purchases on the two new releases. Please use promo code GTFAN at www.threeriverswinery.com to redeem the offer. Tate, who thrives on and enjoys the creative wine process from barrel to bottle, will be signing an autograph card which will be included in the first 100 orders. Order soon as the first two vintages quickly sold out.
Insania (a Latin word meaning insanity, irrationality, madness) has become a labor of love for 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."
