Nightwish wine released for international sales
Imaginaerum Ribera del Duero wine by Nightwish released for international sales

Nightwish has revealed information about its own wine, Imaginaerum, named after its latest album and movie in October. From today, the wine is internationally available for distributors to order and deliver to wine lovers and fans of the band around the world. “The first international markets for Imaginaerum will be Germany, Spain and UK but there are more to come”, lists Tuomas Meriluoto MW, a Finnish Master of Wine responsible for the wine project in co-operation with the band.

When information about this red wine to be launched was revealed, the origin was announced as Spain while the production region remained secret.

Tuomas Meriluoto MW “Now, having finally received the authorization from the controlling body of Ribera del Duero and being ready to start the sales, we are proud to declare that Imaginaerum is coming from such a reputable cult wine region. When I started to look for the wine for this project, it was not clear that it would come from Spain. We also included Argentina, Australia, Chile, US and Italy as potential countries of origin. Now, when the wine is finally ready, it feels very right that we ended up in Ribera del Duero, which in my opinion has a rock star character and attitude that fits very well into this project.

Ribera del Duero is located in the northern plateau of Spain and is one of the top regions within the autonomous community of Castile and León. It is also one of the top regions to be found along the course of the Duero River. Ribera del Duero is home to some of the most reputable Spanish wines that are considered among the world’s finest and sought after by wine lovers all around the globe.

Tuomas Holopainen, Head of Nightwish; “From the very beginning of this project in early 2011, we decided not to make just another band wine. With Imaginaerum we wanted to launch a wine that would set a new standard as well as offer something truly qualitative for the lovers of our music and for anyone interested in wine. As wine lovers ourselves, we also wanted to create something that we would be proud to present.

As a part of the launching of the wine, Nightwish has set a competition where the first prize is a unique, custom-made guitar used by the band’s guitarist Emppu Vuorinen during the Imaginaerum tour. The competition can be found on the band’s Facebook site  and on the Imaginaerum wine website
