Fine Wine Cures Simply Red Star Mick Hucknall

Former Simply Red star Mick Hucknall bought a vineyard and became a wine producer in order to curb the wild drinking of his youth. He explained:

"Ironically, I did it (reduced his alcohol consumption) by getting into wine . . . My logic was I would drink less if the drink was better. So I became obsessed with fine wines. I noticed I was drinking less because of that."

Hucknall now owns a vineyard at his 18th century Italian estate at St Alfio on the slopes of Mount Etna and produces Il Cantante (The Singer) - a red blend between Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio.
