Ep. 1935 Stacy Buchanan | Voices With Cynthia Chaplin

Welcome to Episode 1935, in which Cynthia Chaplin interviews Stacy Buchanan in this installment of Voices, on the Italian Wine Podcast. Stacy is the founder of Blood of Gods magazine in Washington State, an international print publication that combines wine and heavy metal music!

More about today’s guest: 

Stacy Buchanan, Publisher

Part publisher, producer, and event promoter, Stacy Buchanan is a one-man hype machine, with a preacher’s passion to bridge not hearts to god, but wine to heavy metal music. His biannual cult heavy metal and wine ‘zine, Blood of Gods, launched in Spring 2020, is his testimony—his annual Merrymaking, a festival of art, music, and wine in downtown Walla Walla, Washington, the revival tent.

By any measure, he’s succeeding, with a gift for uniting people and ideas across backgrounds and industries, attracting awards, accolades, and pilgrims along the way. While in Walla Walla for the inaugural Merrymaking, Paul Grieco of famed NYC wine bar Terroir proclaimed, “This is the crowd and demographic the wine industry is jonesing for.”

Other buzz includes an induction to Wine Enthusiast’s “Future 40” and Imbibe magazine’s “Imbibe 75” lists, the latter dubbing Buchanan a person who "will inspire the way we all drink in the year to come," among notable nods from Decibel, Somm Journal, SIP, and more.
