I am excited to announce Dennen Wines and my first wine, Charismatic Fool. During my years of touring, I’ve met numerous
inspiring winemakers from all over the world. It has always been a dream of mine to join them and make my own wine that
represents who I am and my personal tastes. Dennen Wines is a continuation of the brand that I have built as a musician, with the
legs to take us where music cannot go.
Wine has long been the companion of the artist, no matter the poet or the painter, from Rumi to Renoir. Aside from love and pain,
it’s been the ultimate source of inspiration for my songwriting and painting. As flavors change with each sip, they inspire
different words, thoughts, colors, and emotions. When I write songs or paint, my goal is always to inspire people. To be play a role in
the journey of changes life presents. I approach wine with the same intentions. Each varietal and vintage will be created with
all of my heart.
For the last several years, I’ve been obsessed with Rosé. It’s light and subtle, yet still festive and elegant. Charismatic Fool is a wine for all occasions: brunch, cocktail hour, a celebration, a meal, a warm summer day or watching a sunset. I made Charismatic Fool as a sparkling rosé, as a reminder that life is a celebration. To steal my own lyric, "We need to celebrate being alive." This is a memorable wine that I know you'll enjoy and want to share with your friends. It’s refreshing, earthy, and has a hint of sweetness.
“Have you ever been loved by such a charismatic fool?” is a line from one of my songs. I’m a dreamer at heart. I strive to stay playful and inspired. I write my own book and I fit in only in the space I create for myself. A charismatic fool is someone who takes their shoes off on the dance floor at a wedding. Someone who knows how to have fun and doesn’t worry about what people think of them. They can be the center of attention, be admired, or be silly. This is the spirit behind my first wine!
