KISS vocalist and guitarist Paul Stanley will donate the first bottles of his new range of wines to a charity auction to help victims of February’s devastating bush fires in Australia.
The first bottles of the Paul Stanley Collection – produced in the Barossa Valley – won’t be available to the public until 2010, but Stanley has donated the first bottles and an original painting to the Australian Red Cross to be auctioned off simultaneously in Melbourne and Sydney on May 30.
“We have decided to offer something unique that will capture the imagination of bidders,” said Paul Roper of Wines To The Stars. “We are in fact presenting the opportunity to bid for wines that are ‘one-off bottles’ and extremely rare and collectible. Also, the added opportunity to own a piece of art history, a real genuine showpiece to hang in their home, office or where ever they desire. It is Paul’s and our wish that we can raise as much as possible for this very special charity and Paul has personally signed each of the labels as well as the original painting. These wines will be fantastic collectables for years to come. It is only fitting that we use the international and popular status of Paul Stanley as well as one of Australia’s great boutique wine producers, to create interest to attract bidders to raise as much as we can.”
