Marilyn Merlot and the Naked Grape

Marilyn Merlot and the Naked Grape (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


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.
