Dan Aykroyd once chased ghosts in Ghostbusters, but now he’s chasing grapes. Akyroyd, 56, has his own line of wine and vodka, and he wants you to know about it. He signed bottles of wine for hundreds at local liquor stores throughout MA and NH as he launched his new 2007 Discovery Series: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Crystal Head vodka.
Aykroyd promoted his new product line by signing bottles and memorabilia that fans brought with them from his Blues Brothers days. On February 26, fans waited up to several hours to see him at the Kappy’s Fine Wine and Spirits in Peabody, MA. Watch a video here of Dan entering Kappy’s and check out the official Dan Aykroyd Wines website to read about his journey into wine country.
One fan told us that she had recently attended a special night of the Blue Brothers to promote the House of Blues on Lansdowne Street in Boston. Aykroyd and Jim Belushi performed old Blues Brothers hits as part of his visit in New England. Not a bad way to spend an evening in town.
