Post Malone is feeling grateful — and likely a little relieved — after firefighters put out a blaze at the vineyard where his Maison No. 9 wine is produced.
Wildfires broke out in mid-August in the Var region, near the South of France, and quickly spread to the surrounding area. While the fires reportedly started in forests, officials say strong winds eventually fanned the flames to wine-growing areas as well. The BBC reports at least 73 wineries that were affected by the blaze.
Fortunately, firefighters were able to get to Malone’s winery in time. A rep for Maison No. 9 says though “the vineyard was impacted heavily… thankfully, the hardworking firefighters were able to get the blaze under control.”
Malone and his team paid a visit to the winery this week to access the situation, later hosting a dinner for a few of the firefighters to thank them for their efforts in saving his crop. Per the rep, “[The team] was saddened to see the damage to an area they’ve grown to love so much but were very thankful to see that their grapes were saved. Post and his team were so moved by the firefighters hard and brave work.”
Launched last May, Malone’s popular rosé wine is produced in Provence, France in conjunction with Alexis Cornu, head winemaker of Provence Rosé Group. The two spent much of 2019 – in-between Post’s sold-out tour dates – traveling frequently to the winery, and the musician has since become very familiar with the entire wine-making process. As a result, it was important for Malone to not only see the current state of the vineyards, but to also meet and honor the people who helped put out the fires.
Maison No. 9 is available to purchase now on Drizly.com. Per the company, the rosé wine is a 2019 Méditerranée IGP, with a blend of 45% Grenache Noir, 25% Cinsault, 15% Syrah, and 15% Merlot, and easily identifiable by its soft, light “Provencal Pink” color that shines through the sleek glass bottle.
