Themed Wines and Bizarre Bottles

We know our advice to you all last time was to never buy a wine based on its bottle alone. However, we want to give credit to the producers who really try to rope in consumers with creative themes or wacky bottles. They definitely keep wine shopping fun!

The sheer amount of planning and work that goes into original bottles and themed wines is no joke. We would like this post to be dedicated to wines that really go above in beyond in creativity.

Cat Lore

Our feline friends are a famous German Reisling produced by Moselland. Their webpage explains the cat-bottle lore:

According to legend, three wine merchants came to the town of Zell (in Germany) to buy wine. They were about to sample out of a barrel when a black cat suddenly jumped on it, arched its back, and swiped its paw at anyone who approached it. The wine merchants chose the barrel guarded by the cat thinking it held the best wine.

Zeller Schwarze Katz wine sold so well that wines from this vineyard in Zell have maintained the name since. But Moselland was the first and only winery to actually market their wine in a black, cat shaped bottle! Now there are many colors, finishes for holidays, and a special pink bottle to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Research.”

Does She look familiar?

Hello_Kitty_drinks

Japan’s original Hello Kitty has her own wine collection. Don’t be fooled however, this is fine quality wine produced by the Italian Torti “Tenimenti Castelrotto” family. This wine is specially from the Lombardy Region in the Oltrepo Pavese area. Hello Kitty isn’t messing around here.

 

 

 

Real Wine for Real Bitches

Excuse you?!

This wine is a famous juicy Grenache from South Australia. We’re sure you’ve seen it in wine stores all over or at your best friend’s house. “R Wines” is also labeled as one of world’s most gifted wine makers. They are very proud of their wine.

Did Disney just call? This creative wine branding IS actually sold on Walt Disney World Property (I was there and I can prove it) However, the wine is produced by Faraway Vineyards in Sonoma, CA. So pop in Cinderella for a taste of their “Lost Slipper Sauvignon Blanc.” We are not sure as to the quality of this wine so I bought two bottles to figure it out 🙂 Expect a new post on that soon!

What Happened Last Night?

OOPS! Some mistakes were meant to happen.” This wine brand produced in Chile advertises bottles like “Voluptuous Beauty,” “Cheeky Little White,” and “Bodacious Blonde.” The vineyard has a history of accomplished owners along with a catchy brand name. Did you have any Oops moments with this wine?

House Wine brings you these two varietals of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon for your tasting pleasure. They made it incredibly simple for new Wineos to pair. Pick up with “Fish House” for your seafood and probably poultry needs and “Steak House” for that sultry steak in your life. Thank you House Wines for making dinner with the in-laws a little bit simpler.

 

 

Fishing for the Best Wine

Finally we have the fabulous fish bottle. Brought to us by Opici Wines, this white wine blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Trebbiano, and Verdicchio is an import from Italy. Originating from the Marche region, this bottle is a tradition that is centuries old. Obviously, we recommend serving this with seafood (and so does the vineyard). Let us know if this fish lives up to its reputation!

 

 

Thank you for reading about our fun bottle findings! If you find any funky bottles with fabulous wine let us know!

Stay Sipping!
