Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Train's wine, which is a 2009 Petite Sirah, will be available for just $9.99 as of July 18. The proceeds from the sales will be donated to a charity called Family House.

The idea for making the group's own "Drops of Jupiter" wine stemmed from Train's wine club, which delivers two bottles of wine to your home at the beginning of each month.

"We're not really trying to get into the wine business or anything," said Train's guitarist Jimmy Stafford, in a recent interview with Billboard. "It's really kind of helping to spread the name out there, and something for our fans."

It's a pretty classy project for a band that tends to be somewhat low-key yet so mainstream.
