A Peculiar Collection of Uncommon Wines
 
Within these pages are more than 100 of the oddest wines ever produced. Some have unusual names, like Fat Bastard Chardonnay and Lazy Lizard Shiraz. Others feature curious artwork of singing frogs and UFO invasions. Still others boast unique production features, such as Braille typography, heat-sensitive ink, and lenticular art.
 
Along with full-color reproductions of the original labels, author Peter F. May shares stories about the origins of the wines and provides helpful tasting notes. Readers will learn about unusual vineyards (like Cleavage Creek, which donates its proceeds to breast cancer research) as well as the most innovative artists working in the wine label medium. Finally, there’s an appendix of resources that will help you locate these wines—so you can savor them yourself.

Book Description Quirk Books, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a quirky book for wine lovers of all descriptions - and the only book of it s kind on the market. It features reproductions of over 100 unusual labels, and contains amusing commentary, a glossary and notes on where to buy the featured wines. It is great for businesses, special sales, wine shops, staff giveaways, as well as general trade. All these wines - and 100-plus more - can be found in Marilyn Merlot and The Naked Grape , a celebration of the weirdest and wildest wines ever made. Some have strange names, like Cat s Pee on a Gooseberry Bush. Others have bizarre artwork, like the Magritte-inspired UFO invasion shown here. Still others have unusual production features (a Braille label for blind wine-lovers, or an on-label thermometer that alerts the user when the wine is properly chilled). Along with brilliant full-colour reproductions of the original labels, we ll feature brief stories about the origins of the wines/names/artwork, as well as tasting notes from the author. Readers will learn about unusual vineyards (like Cleavage Creek, which donates its proceeds to breast cancer research) as well as some of the most innovative artists working in the wine label medium. Finally, there s an appendix of resources that will help you buy these wines - so you can try them for yourself. Seller Inventory # BZV9781594740992
