Internationally recognized wine expert Mark Oldman just released his new book Oldman's Brave New World of Wine and Alex Lifeson along with dozens of other celebrity wine lovers are profiled in the book. Alex discusses his favorite wines, wine-based experiences, and a few tricks he's picked up over the years. Here's an excerpt:

Bandmate Geddy Lee and I went to California's Turley Wine Cellars in late September of 1998 to spend a few days working the harvest. We pulled all of the leaves and spiders and all that stuff out of the bins, and so we were covered head-to-toe in grape juice. Later, Ged and I stopped at this restaurant for lunch. Our shirts and fingers were all purple-we were so proud! People were like, "Yeah, you guys are locals, aren't you? We'll get you some service right away, sir."
-Alex Lifeson

Geddy Lee was profiled in Oldman's 2004 book Oldman's Guide to Outsmarting Wine. You can purchase Oldman's Brave New World of Wine at this link. Thanks to John at for the heads up.
