Dan Aykroyd Opens $11M Eponymous Winery
Dan Aykroyd is throwing his star power behind an $11 million winery that aims to boost the Niagara wine region's international profile. The Dan Aykroyd Winery, which will showcase souvenirs from the actor's career, will be located near the town of Lincoln, Ontario, in the heart of the province's vineyards.
"This is really a dream," said Aykroyd, who was born in Ottawa, during a news conference Wednesday.
"We joked about doing a Coneheads vodka or something," the 54-year-old actor said, referring to one of his best-known characters on NBC's "Saturday Night Live." "And I never thought that a line of wines would be a possibility."
