Bassist Les Claypool has developed his own personal brand of wine, The Purple Pachyderm, at the at the Hopmonk Tavern in Sebastopol, California. Claypool calls it “…big, bold and well-balanced with a magnificent nose!”
Claypool originally made his own wine for his personal stock, but has now grown into a small business venture.
“We’ve been living in Sebastopol for 15 years and [when we got here] it was all apple orchards that disappeared and turned into Pinot Noir grapes. Seemed like a logical step,” said Claypool.
