October Wine Friday: The Scariest and Funniest Wine LABEL

十月份的品酒會因應時令, 所以這個月的酒題是: 最可怕或最幽默的酒標. 其實當我們定下這主題時並不知道有多困難, 事後來當我們自己再找的時候才體會到, 因為一般的酒標不是中規中矩的英文字標上酒名產地和年份, 就是美美的風景圖, 很少酒莊會換上不同的酒標應景, 好加在我們找到二瓶還算可怕的酒標, 加上來客帶來的酒, 當天共有六瓶不同的可怕酒標, 目的完成. 你覺得哪一個酒標最可怕呢? (點圖可看放大景)

  1. May,
    I didn’t know you are reading my blog? How’s your life in taipei? It has been a few years since you move back there (my god, time gone fast). When would you be back here for visit? I need early notice next time. . .

  2. Zombie looks scary!
    I didn’t know wineries will use different labels for Holloween event. Will wineries do the same thing on other events? Or just for the Holloween?
    Your menu lists looks so attractive, can’t wait for your following posts.

  3. 酒莊通常是不會應景換酒標
    所以才會一時難找
    最好是平常就有在留意一些特殊的酒標
    以備不時之需
    我知道有些酒莊可以讓你購買某個數量的酒
    然後貼上你特製的酒標當成禮物送人
    有些新婚夫妻就是以此做禮物送給來客
