Funnymen Wines

The joke's on you with these producers

Sometimes you just have to laugh, hopefully with some frequency, especially if you’re one of our funnymen winemakers.

Everybody knows that the best way to easy riches is by owning a winery. Bada-bum-bum. Rimshot! Joke. Okay, so the real joke is how do you make a million in the wine business? Start with four! Still not funny, yes I am aware.

Well these guys are real jokers in the regular world, but all of them have a serious side as well — presumably the one involved with their wine business because as we all know, wine is no joking matter.

There’s that old saying, “There’s a fine line between genius and insanity.” Now I’m not sure you’d consider any of these guys geniuses, but considering their forays into the wine business, I suggest they are each a little mad in their own ways.

These are comedians making wine, which ironically is a shorter list than celebrities making wine. This might be funny, if so much of their wine wasn’t so god-awful. Actually, that in itself is mildly amusing. So who can turn a phrase, handle a heckle, take a pratfall and still make something worth drinking? Let’s take a look.
