Ultimate Guitar

Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine has introduced Mustaine Vineyards' debut limited-edition first release Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, "Symphony Interrupted," Blabbermouth reports. This very special wine was made in limited quantities to commemorate Mustaine's sold-out performance with the San Diego Symphony.

You can now order "Symphony Interrupted" Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 here.

Mustaine will be a featured soloist with the San Diego Symphony this spring. The classical special concert, billed as "Symphony Interrupted," will take place at Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego, California on Saturday, April 12 at 8:00 PM.

In this truly unique concert event, Mustaine brings his crunchy and energetic sensibility to the great works of classical music which have inspired him over the course of his Grammy-nominated, multi platinum-selling career. When Dave Mustaine performs the virtuosic "Summer" and "Winter" movements from Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons," and Bach's classic "Air" on the G string, you will see a truly different side of "metal."

Megadeth's latest album, "Super Collider" has sold mor ethan 80,000 copies in the United States since its June 4, 2013 release. The CD arrived in stores via Mustaine's new label, Tradecraft, distributed by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe).

    I had a few glasses then blacked out. The next morning everyone told me I was in a drunk stupor complaining about being kicked out of Metallica.

    When you drink this, you feel you must publicise all of your political interests... and hate on Obama.
    Does anyone else find it strange that a guy who's so into his sobriety is now pimping a wine?
    Mustaine's wine brand?... isn't this supposed to be published next week on April's fools day?!
    Slayer wine,Megadeth wine...the next big thrash metal band shall come from France,it seems.
    I think Zappa's theory that "Winos don't march" has hereby been disproven *Inb4 "TF, you calling Dave's a fascist??!": Frank's tongue-in-cheek remark implied that beer has always been the drink of choice for violent d*uchebags (which is why beer ads -particularly American ones- often look like a Motley Crue video, only in a beach setting). Considering Dave's frequent outbursts, his extremely competitive attitude, etc. I wouldn't have thought of him as a wine guy by that logic In fact, given the fact that he's a born again Christian with a history of substance abuse I'm surprised he even ventured into this realm: a lot of sobered up rockstars opt for total abstinence when it comes to alcohol and whatnot. If he has indeed stopped drinking (which I'm sure I read somewhere) but doesn't mind taking a sip of his own product every once in a while due to his passion for this thing, then good for him. But if he's not involved in the process at all and the wine just bears his name because he owns the vineyard or whatever then there's no reason for Megadeth fans to spend a lot of money on one of these bottles. I for one bought the Iron Maiden-ale because my local liquor store just happened to have a few of 'em, but a friend of mine who lives in Spain spent like 30 bucks just to have a bottle sent to him... :\
    Wow you make wine because you had a sold out show? Bit overcompensating isn't it?
    what have YOU done?
    Fuck this is stupid question. How the **** people come up with questions like that? BTW, Wine is more likely label's idea.
    But he's sober these days! *wink, wink*
    I remember reading in his book that he still has a glass or two of wine over dinner. He just doesn't get sloshed anymore.
