Stacy Buchanan
Blood of Gods

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 publication, 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.

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. With recent panel appearances at New Zealand’s ‘Super Wild‘ and Seattle’s ‘Taste Washington’, along with a book arriving in early 2025.
