Ghost launch Papastrello wine

Ghost have launched their own brand of wine, Papastrello, in their native Sweden.

Billed as “an Italian red wine for the unholy moments of life” that “would pair well with roast meats, game and aged cheese as well as standing alone as accompaniment to after-dinner discussion, the band would like to inform you that it goes equally well with most rituals, wicker-burnings and other pagan activities.”

“This wine is not holier than thou or myself,” says Papa Emeritus III. “It’s a good bottle to bring when you are about to sacrifice something sacred. It’s fermented grapes with a nice label!"

A 2013 vintage sourced from Verona, Italy, Ghost Papastrello is available now in Sweden at Systembolaget.

Ghost continue to tour in support of their third album, 2015’s “Meliora.”

The group will begin a spring tour of the US in Montclair, NJ on April 13.

This spring, “Meliora” delivered Ghost some major music industry hardware. Including their first Grammy Award in the Best Metal performance category for the single, “Cirice”, and a Swedish Grammis Award for the "Best Hard Rock/Metal Album" of the year category.
