Ready those wine glasses! If you love both Elvis Presley and a bold-sounding Cabernet Sauvignon, then you’re in luck – as “The King” is available for your sipping pleasure.
Originally coinciding with Elvis’ 86th birthday, Wines That Rock (The Official Wine of Rock ‘N Roll™) put out the red carpet for The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll this year.
Working with Graceland and the Elvis Presley Estate, Wines That Rock “enlisted Brett Ehlers from E2 Family Winery” to bring fans a California Cabernet Sauvignon in spirit of The King himself!
Monday, Elvis’ estate is celebrating the release on Twitter, giving fans a peek at the back of the fittingly dark bottle. I may not be a wine drinker myself, but as a die-hard Elvis Presley fan, this is one bottle I will absolutely be picking up!
“The limited-edition Elvis Presley Wine is a powerful, full-bodied wine that has rich flavors of blackberries, toasty oak, and espresso – fit for a KING!” tweets the Elvis Presley Estate Monday. Check out the release here, before we get into more detail on the wine itself below:
Elvis Presley Wine ‘Pays Homage to the Music, the Man, The King of Rock ‘N Roll!’
“Wines That Rock has produced wine for some of Rock ‘N Roll’s most iconic brands including: The Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, The Police, Muddy Waters, KISS and many others. Finally, after 15 years of making Wines That Rock, we get to The King!” writes Wines That Rock of the release.
The celebratory wine is to be the first in a series of Elvis! THE KING wines. Each bottle holds an individual number and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Fancy! Thankfully, however, the wine doesn’t hold a “fancy” price tag, and is affordable enough for the everyday fan to secure their own at $24.00/bottle.
More importantly, this first effort is a direct result of Graceland and Elvis’ family estate ensuring a taste The King himself would love. So what, exactly, should fans expect within this official Elvis Presley wine?
According to the makers themselves, Elvis! THE KING is “a powerful, full-bodied wine that has rich flavors of blackberries, toasty oak, and espresso that merge with finely polished tannins for a long luxurious finish. Fit for a King!”

Movies Themed? Graceland? Let Wines That Rock know what you’d love in an Elvis Presley wine here. Perhaps we’ll toast with it in the future!
