The music group Train hopes to do for wine what Jimmy Buffett has done for margaritas.

The group--which consists of Scott Underwood, Patrick Monahan and Jimmy Stafford--recently released a Petite Sirah wine dubbed "Drops of Jupiter."

It's not meant as a big money-making venture. In fact, the group says it will donate one-third of profits to San Francisco's Family House, which provides temporary housing to families with sick children.

Says guitarist Stafford: "We're just trying to create this little vibe, where people can come to our shows and bring a picnic basket and a bottle of wine."
