    They sometimes call that a magnum or is it the stupidly over sized bottles you see as a display?

    The large formated bottles won't be on sale online. Though there will be an auction for them.

    I'm in the Underground Wine Project wine club, and the Idle Hands + Devil's Playground are on heavy rotation in our 'dailies' selection. The Idle Hands (same stock as Home x Away) is probably going to peak in the next 12-18 months if put into a cellar, otherwise drink now.

    I missed out on this.  I know this is a long shot, but did anyone do an impulse buy, and be willing to sell?

    @demetrios, any word on the auction on the large format bottles? Would love one of those 3L.
    Thanks!

    Rock’N Vino: Winemaker partners with Pearl Jam for charity wine label


    Trey Busch Sleight of Hand Cellars Pearl Jam

    Sleight of Hand Cellars winemaker Trey Busch in Walla Walla, Washington.

    If the name Sleight of Hand Cellars sounds familiar, that’s because it was named after a Pearl Jam song. In fact, it’s the favorite Pearl Jam song of Walla Walla, Washington winemaker Trey Busch.

    A love of the band’s music and an opportunity to make wine brought Busch to the Northwest. His passion also led him to partner with Pearl Jam and develop the wines for the band’s recent string of “Home Shows” in Seattle, benefiting the Vitalogy Foundation’s efforts to help find a solution to the homelessness issue in the Seattle area.

    The limited 450-box run, called “Home X Away,” was made available to fans via Pearl Jam’s online newsletter and became an instant hit, selling out in roughly 12 minutes. Fans received a four-bottle package featuring a special label for each of the band’s stadium shows.

    Busch wasn’t initially sure whether the wine would be popular with fans, as it was somewhat of an unorthodox and more expensive product than what the band usually sells to fans, at $150 a pop.

    “I was getting text messages from my IT team that morning of the on sale,” Busch said. “Every 30 seconds he said, ’68, 112, 172 sold.’ … After about 12 minutes we had completely sold out.”

    Neil Patrick Harris Sleight of Hand Cellars

    The winery also made 50 cases available to Seattle restaurants during the band’s pair of shows for fans who missed out on the on-sale.

    The wine collaboration ultimately resulted in a $70,000 donation to the Vitalogy Foundation, which Busch said was one of the most rewarding parts of the project. Busch said he’s already looking at ways to work with the band for future wines down the road.

    Busch spoke with Mike DeWald and Coco Sterzenbach about his motivations, and working with Neil Patrick Harris, who just happened to join the Sleight of Hand’s wine club before getting his own label.

    I was curious about this.  So all 4 bottles are no good after a year and a half?
