The Ringmaster General
In 2012 we were delighted and excited to release a limited edition of our 2010 Carnival of Love Shiraz which was specially packaged to commemorate the release of Dave Stewart’s album 'The Ringmaster General.'
He may have sold 75 million records worldwide and been inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame... but the Eurythmics Dave Stewart was also a delightful and creative pleasure to work with on this special collaboration.
Here's what he wrote on the back label of this very special limited edition Shiraz...
As ‘The Ringmaster General’ I introduce to you the incredible wine you are about to experience.
Declarations of the most ‘daring’, ‘amazing’, ‘spectacular’ are commonly used when introducing circus performers.
Sarah & Sparky to me are the Flying Trapeze artists of the wine industry and I’m so honoured to collaborate with them and their ‘Mollydooker Circus’ to create ‘The Greatest Wine on Earth.’
Each bottle was gift boxed and included a DVD containing hits from The Blackbird Diaries and select songs from The Ringmaster General album, a 90 min documentary on the making of 'The Blackbird Diaries' and ‘The Ringmaster General’ and Dave Stewart's musical accompaniment to the Mollydooker Guided Tour video. All we could say was "WOW!!!"
