Vampire Wine Is a Thing Now, Perfect for Halloween
Because why wouldn't you drink blood — er, wine — on Halloween?
Fox News points out the wines made by none other than Vampire Vineyards, by owner Michael Machat (who says he had the idea to capitalize on vampires and wine in the '80s, way before vampires were cool). What's on the list? Dracula Pinot Noir, Chateau du Vampire, and Trueblood, each ranging from $10 to $30.
Of course, the vineyard also plays up its vampire edge. "Rumor has it that the Vampire Vineyards are actually owned by a circle of vampires, and the company’s founder, an entertainment attorney from New York, is actually just a front... We do know however that after satiating themselves for years with their Transylvanian blood of the vine, the powers that be decided to spice things up and migrate westward like so many vampires before them," says the website for Vampire Vineyard. Uh huh....
Those in Los Angeles can stop by the lounge tasting room for a taste; our friends at Snooth have reviewed it as well.
