(Sonoma, CA) - Hoffman Family Cellars and Ask4 Entertainment announced the electric “Headbanger” brand will be the official wine of Shiprocked 2014 (http://www.shiprocked.com).

Hoffman, owner and zinmaker of Headbanger.
Alan Koenig, owner of Ask4 Entertainment and creator/producer of Shiprocked, stated, “The Headbanger Brand and the people behind the wine matches our passion for music and having a great time. We are thrilled to bring our guests quality wine that reaches in and touches their soul just like bands we are featuring.” Over the four days, Headbanger Wines will be poured at each show, in dining venues, and in the VIP lounge. There will even be a “Headbanger” stage featuring several of the bands.
“This program fits perfectly within our national promotion strategy,” Hoffman said. “Our goal of speaking directly to the consumer started our partnership with National Recording Artist, Digital Summer (who will be featured on the cruise), and continues with events like Shiprocked. These events create memories of a lifetime and an incredibly loyal consumer for years to come. The participating Bands and Artists have a social media interaction that opens a marketing platform to several consumer demographics way beyond the traditional scope of the wine industry reach. Now, That’s Exciting.”
