The Grapeful Cellars was a second label for sombody - maybe Von Strasser? The Leapfrogmilch is a tongue-in-cheek name for the annual release of a white blend by Frog's Leap winery. (Check out the language on the center tag.) The Hellacious Acres buzzard almost makes you think that the Zin would be an excellent accompaniment to roadkill.

Nice motto on the Grateful Red. I believe Jerry Garcia's estate approached this label with a cease and desist order. The Glimigrim is one of Mat Garretson's wines. Great label and woodcut illustration. Hey, doesn't Gulliver look a little like Ted Danson in this picture? And, how about that Smoking Duck. I wonder if they smoke White Owls.

Rosenblum's been doing the Chateau La Paws for some time now. All the canine references on the label are due to the fact the Kent Rosenblum is a veterinarian. The label in the middle caught my attention - it just seemed ironic to have a Robert Blanc label on a red wine. I have to admit, Flying Goat is a cool name - plus, I hear their goats really DO fly!

I can Jest see the ads now, Jest for Fun, Jest Because, Jest for Now, Jest What Are You Up To, ...etc. Another clever name - I wonder if over-indulgence is the 8th Deadly Zin.
