“In the last 20 years, the ‘outlaw biker’ image associated with Harleys has been replaced by a new demographic. Most bikers are now in their 40s and 50s, with steady careers and families. What they share is a love of the finer things in life, and an interest in good food, good times…and of course, good wine,” said a statement from V-Twin Vineyards

So, here’s a thought: What’s a good wine to pair with your bike?

“The motorcycle lifestyle is all about freedom, about enjoying life and enjoying your friends,” said Scott Del Fava, Brand Manager for V-Twin Vineyards. “Our first release, a 2004 Zinfandel, is really turning heads with the motorcycling community. The front label is emblazoned with skulls and a flaming v-twin engine — and the wine inside is damn good.”

The Zin is pretty good. It’s bone dry and very strong — a tough wine that lives up to its name.

“The V-Twin Vineyards team has decades of experience in the wine industry,” said Del Fava. “The grapes for V-Twin Zin have been carefully selected from an estate vineyard in the legendary Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County.”

V-Twin Zin is available on their website and thru select distributors. “Having a ‘virtual winery’ allows the V-Twin Vineyards team to focus on quality and marketing while building the brand,” said Del Fava. “Planned Releases include: River Run Chardonnay, Poker Run Cabernet, Redwood Run Zinfandel and Toy Run Rose.”

“These ain’t no sissy wines! Look for a tasting room in the not- too-distant future, with good wine, a little attitude, and plenty of Harley parking out front.
