Dan Aykroyd gives his name to new $11 million Canadian winery

TORONTO (AP) -- Dan Aykroyd will soon have some wines he recommends.

The former "Saturday Night Live" star is giving his name to an eleven (m) million-dollar winery in Canada.

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. Construction begins this fall and should be completed in time for the 2008 growing season.

The winery will feature technologies such as solar panels and green-friendly wastewater management systems.

It's expected to produce everything from mid-range wines, costing from 14 dollars, to limited releases for more than 93 dollars a bottle.
