Dan Aykroyd to Release Wine in 2007
First it was Marilyn Merlot and Elvis wine, and now we have...Dan Aykrod? If you ask us, and we know you didn't, Dan Aykroyd is a man who gave us some very funny movies 20 or 30 years ago, and has left us with some not so funny flicks in recent years. Now we've found out there may be a reason for the recent suckitude - he's focusing his attention on wine.
Less than one year after announcing his $1 million investment into the four wineries owned by Diamond Estates - Lakeview Cellars, EastDell Estates, Birchwood Estates and Thomas & Vaughan - Aykroyd will further solidify his position in the Canadian wine business by launching two ranges of Canadian wines, the Dan Aykroyd Signature Reserve Series of super-premium offerings and the Dan Aykroyd Discovery Series of mid-priced wines.
The first wine to be released under the Dan Aykroyd label will be his Signature Reserve VQA Niagara Peninsula Vidal Icewine 2005, which will be available in 2007.

We kid you not when we first read the name of his new wine we thought it said "Viagra," which would be an interesting way to put a little punch in your vino. Anyway, we wish him all the luck and hope his wines don't suck as much as Blues Brothers 2000 (or Nothing But Trouble...or Loser...or Evolution...or Christmas With the Kranks...you get the picture).
