In an extraordinary collaboration, three-time GRAMMY Award winner Darius Rucker has teamed up with renowned winemaker Chris Radomski to launch AS ONE CRU, a wine brand that captures the spirit of unity and lasting memories. Rucker’s sophisticated taste and artistic sensibilities will be central to the creation of these wines, guiding each bottle from concept to completion.

Reflecting on his journey, Rucker shares, “I’ve been a big fan of wine since my buddy Dan Marino shared some amazing bottles with me in the early Hootie & the Blowfish days. To me, a great wine is about the moments you create with the people you love. I’ve had the same musical family – the same crew – for almost 30 years, so the spirit of AS ONE CRU is something I’ve been living for a long time. And it really doesn’t hurt that the wine is absolutely delicious!”

AS ONE CRU currently offers two highly-rated 99-point wines: the refined Napa Valley and Oregon Pinot Noirs, and a sophisticated, full-bodied Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Additional varietals are anticipated to be released this summer.

With a career spanning over 25 years and more than 20 wines achieving perfect 100-point ratings, Radomski is a luminary in the winemaking world. As a founding partner of Layer Cake and Hundred Acre wines, he draws inspiration from the intersection of music, art, food, and wine. “I’ve always felt music, art, food and wine are interconnected – they’re all ways to collaborate and soak up time with your friends & family – your crew,” he shares. “Whether you’re celebrating a milestone or simply enjoying the company of your loved ones, there’s nothing like coming together over a glass of great wine.”

Radomski, a longtime admirer of Rucker’s music, spanning from the ‘90s to his current achievements in Country music, expressed his excitement about the partnership. “I’ve been a fan of Darius from the ‘90s up through the amazing stuff he’s doing right now in Country music, and we’re really thrilled to welcome him to the CRU. He brings an authentic, laid-back charm that represents what this wine is all about.”

Rahul “Raj” Sheth of SOTC Multimedia Group, a distinguished member of the CRU, adds, “There’s an artistry in every sip. The depth of the flavors, the meaning behind the name – it’s an emotion and a philosophy in a bottle.”

Rucker conveys his enthusiasm, stating, “As a kid from Charleston, I’ve been lucky to live out my dreams of making music that so many people have created memories over. AS ONE CRU is another way I can share what I love with the world. I can’t wait for you to experience the wines!”
