BeschreibungA 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.
