Wine labels to feature Playboy models?
“Wine collectors might have a reason to rethink their cellar organization system. Regions and vintages could take a backseat to racking bottles by month—January through December—because Playboy Enterprises is dipping its toes into the wine market.
Now, if they only offered a wine collection that used text from vintage issues of Playboy as labels, because everyone knows the real reason to subscribe to the magazine is for the articles.”
Following the success of their 2006 collaboration with Marilyn Wines, the company has recently announced its new wine of the month club, offering well-respected labels such as Miss February 1962 and Miss July 1964.
Each bottle will have a different photo label featuring a Playboy cover from the 1960s and 70s, arguably the magazine’s classiest decades. And oh, right, the wine! Playmates for this project include Schug, Janzen and St. Supéry, and apparently the wine in each bottle is meant to reflect the qualities of the specific cover model (though we find it hard to imagine writing a tasting note using the terms blond, blue-eyed and busty).
So how exactly have they chosen the wine to reflect the the qualties of the bunnies…?
