Name Game

Thursday, November 19, 2009

I’m a sucker for a lot of things. Clothes with ruffles, bows and sparkles. Anything Hello Kitty. Cupckaes and food on a stick. The color pink. Shoes. The list goes on.

So when it comes to wine with creative names, taste and flavor are forgotten and my hands go after brands with eye catching titles and bottles.

Here are some creative wine options I’ve recently laid eyes on:

The Coolist recently had a feature on the top 30 wine labels. This is where I fell in love with Boarding Pass Shiraz. The bottle (above) features, well, a boarding pass with an adorable tagline. “Boarding Pass is a free ticket to the taste of South Eastern Australia – like going on a journey without leaving home.”

Any glamour gal will absolutely love Marilyn Merlot. This bottle is perfect for a girls night out or a fabulous hostess gift.

Another great pink from The Coolist – B Frank Wine. With a MadLib-like lable, you can help fill in the name of the wine with a frank statement.

For the person who loves a road trip (or just likes to drink), enter Happy Camper wine. I wish I had this for those days of drinking in the woods at Kamp Keystone.

Looking for a wine for a newlywed friend? Try the Mad Housewife selection. Not only is the packaging adorable, but Mad Housewife won three medals in the International Wine Competition.

Happy Drinking!
