Geddy Lee one of Wine Enthusiasts' "Six Celebrity Wine Makers"

The June, 2014 issue of Wine Enthusiast magazine contains the article "Six Celebrity Wine Makers", which includes Geddy Lee.   Geddy discusses about the connection between music and wine-making, how he and Alex Lifeson became interested in wine, and names his desert island bottle.
"During the late ’70s and early ’80s, while on tour, we would receive gifts from concert promoters of fine wine. Mostly Bordeaux, as our guitarist Alex Lifeson had a keen interest in wine and had a modest collection. I kept my share of the bottles in a wine fridge for years and then in the late ’80s I decided to do an inventory. I was amazed at what I was tasting and it quickly turned into an obsession."
