HE was the man who sold the world, but now David Bowie’s memory is selling a Spanish wine.

The rock star, who died on January 11 after an 18-month battle with cancer, designed a wine bottle label in 2013 as part of a charity project for Valencia’s largest bodega, Vicente Gandia.

Bowie’s bottle of shiraz is now soaring in price as demand explodes following his death.

The singer was one of 700 celebrities, including Pierce Brosnan, Charlize Theron and Penelope Cruz, taking part in the Whatever It Takes project to design a symbol of hope.

The designs were used to raise more than €450,000 for projects in the Third World.
