Wine, Art and The Simpsons

Simpsons wineHere’s an interesting combination: Wine (I think), Art, and The Simpsons.

Let’s face it, considering those ingredients, it had to happen. I am more curious as to why no one has genuinely manufactured Duff Beer. Ah, but yes they have.


In the case of the Simpsons-esque wine, they have put it into packaging reminiscent of the art of great Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. Art imitates life. Booze imitates cartoons.

Marketers seem to never tire of inventive packaging, or colorful associations with popular culture. They keep creating wines and beers with unusual names and whimsical labels to convince me that it’s unique and clever and interesting…and you know, by association, I might be unique and clever and interesting too.

Polygamy Porter. Moose Drool. Tactical Nuclear Penguin.  No, I am not making this up.

From a fictional beer made real, to wine made into pop-art for our amusement and consumption, I feel so overstimulated that I may need to have a glass of Hello Kitty wine, just to simmer down.  And yes, that’s real too.
