Mat Kearney Rock and Roll Wine (VIDEO)
Wine Oh Wine Club: Mat Kearney Verse & Chorus Wine
What do you get when you pair Nashville-based musician Mat Kearney with the winemakers at Peju Winery, and San Francisco Magazine/Napa Valley insider Ian White? Well, you get a wine that is music to our ears and our mouths. Mat Kearney grew up with grapevines in his backyard in Oregon. He went to college at Chico State in California. Today, Mat Kearney may call Nashville home but wine country has always been in his heart. In Nashville, they say it all starts with a song. In Wine Country, we say it all starts with wine. No matter who takes the lead, when you pair the two, you better believe they will make beautiful music together.
In this edition of the Wine Oh Wine Club we put Mat Kearney’s Verse & Chorus wine to the taste test. But first, Wine Oh TV’s Monique Soltani chats with Mat Kearney about his music, his wine, and why Mat says wine is a lot like a classic song.

What’s the Wine Oh Wine Club you wonder? Well, it’s kind of like a book club for wine. I thought it might be fun to get a group of wine loving gals with different tastes and perspectives together to drink some wine and share their thoughts on it based on their different backgrounds.
I wanted to bring a group of gals together, who like to have fun and love to drink wine!
