A new wine from ... Whitesnake?

We've seen a lot of wines released by musicians over the years - Bob Dylan, Jerry Garcia, Maynard James Keenan from Tool, Luis Miguel. But here's a celebrity wine that'll make you think, "Holy hair metal!"

The hard rock band Whitesnake, known for such rock hits as "Here I Go Again" and its video vixen Tawny Kitaen writhing, is about to release a signature wine. Witness the 2008 Whitesnake Russian River Valley Zinfandel, which will begin shipping on July 1. The wine's made by De La Montanya Winery & Vineyards of Healdsburg, and can be purchased here for $29.95 per bottle.

Stay tuned for tasting notes. But when might be the best time to savor this wine? Like the Whitesnake song says, "In the still of the night!" \m/
