Astro Biz: Purple Moon shiraz

IMG_0946Many businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one every Tuesday on Seattle Astronomy.

Today’s Astro Biz is Purple Moon shiraz, available exclusively at Trader Joe’s. Purple Moon is not a winery; rather, it is an exclusive label for TJ’s created by Delicato Family Vineyards in Manteca, California. In addition to the shiraz, there’s also a chardonnay under the label and, at times, there has been a merlot as well.

Online reviews of the wine seldom get to stellar, but the price of Purple Moon is out of this world at around $4.

We went with the Moon with Astro Biz as a nod to the full Moon coming up on Saturday.
