Jon Bon Jovi: Music, Charity, Wine
Wine Spectator editor and publisher Marvin R. Shanken (David Yellen)
From the Oct 31, 2021, issue

World-famous rock star Jon Bon Jovi's determination and hard work are at the core of his success, and he is passing those values to his own children, including Jesse Bongiovi, with whom he has cofounded a wine rosé brand. Wine Spectator editor and publisher Marvin R. Shanken reflects on the successes of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, who has created a foundation that has provided homes and meals for thousands. Read his introduction to the cover story of the Oct. 31, 2021, issue, which also includes tasting reports on the wines of Tuscany, New Zealand and Amarone and a report on whiskies aged in wine barrels.
