I’m big into subscription boxes, and one of my favorites over the course of the last couple years has been Winc. They curate over a hundred different unique wines that you can have shipped straight to your door each month—and I’ve throughly enjoyed every wine that I’ve chosen personally and every wine that was chosen for me based on my preferences.

Brandeis University biophysicist Daniel Perlman has channeled his knowledge into tackling one of the biggest problems in human history: the dripping wine bottle. [click to continue…]
You have lots of choices when it comes to wine holders, but you’re a kooky bastard. No, you’re going with something fun even though it only holds one freakin’ bottle. A T-Rex Wine Guzzler is clearly the choice for you. The question is—do you want one that is alive or dead? [click to continue…]
Here’s a problem that I’m sure most of you encounter daily: when you’re drinking on the toilet, where do you put your beer or wine? The floor? Gross. The toilet tank? Nah, it’s awkward to turn around. The answer, my friends, is this very special toilet paper holder. [click to continue…]
When I think of food and Final Fantasy, I think of Cup Noodles—not outrageously expensive wine. Still, Square Enix has unveiled the “Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Ultimate Wine Crystal Edition” for some reason. I assume that reason is money. [click to continue…]
Last week, we featured Outlander wine. This week, we discovered that official Game Of Thrones wine on the way. You may be familiar with Game of Thrones beer by Brewery Ommegang, but wine is the official beverage of GoT, so it’s only fitting they get their own special vintages.
Vintage Wine Estates will release three different Game of Thrones wines—a red blend and a Chardonnay have a suggested retail of $19.99, while the Cabernet Sauvignon will retail around $39.99. They should be available starting in March 2017.
I wish the names of the wine were in the spirit of vintners in the Seven Kingdoms, but the bottles are pretty and it’s wine. Hard to go wrong.

Yep, you read that right. An Outlander wine collection has been created with four vintages; the NV Claire Randall Vin Blanc, 2015 Frank Randall Vin de Pays d’Oc Cabernet Sauvignon, 2015 Claire Fraser Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, and the 2014 Jamie Fraser Paso Robles Red Blend.
The collection from Lot 18 was limited to only 2500 bottles per character and everything has sold out but the 2015 Frank Randall Vin de Pays d’Oc Cabernet Sauvignon at the time of writing. Still, the details are worth checking out if you’re a fan. Take a look at all of the awesome labels below. [click to continue…]
If a book and a glass of wine sounds like the perfect evening for you, then you’ll be pleased to know that Italian winery Matteo Correggia and design agency Reverse Innovation have found a way to bring these things closer together.
Combining the Italian words for “book” and “bottle”, their new “Librottiglia” range of wines include short stories built into the label of each bottle. Flavors include red Anthos, ruby red Nebbiolo Roero and white Roero Arneis accompanied by stories such as Patrizia Laquidara’s “A Frog in the Belly”, Regina Marques Nadaes’s “I love you. Forget me” and Danilo Zanelli’s “Murder”.
Sadly, the bottles are only available in Italian at the moment, and there’s no word on whether or not this will eventually change. It should though—this is a great idea. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Imgur user “MymlanOhlin” fashioned this DIY “Alabuster” craft project that will give your wine bottles a skeletal Halloween vibe.
She also gave the world a step-by-step tutorial of the creative process, which involves printing or tracing an anatomically correct skeleton hand, modelling each individual bone with clay and assembling them on a paper backing for easy flexing around the bottle, while a clay skull is created directly on the container itself.
As you’ll see below, the process requires more time, tools and talent than most of us possess. [click to continue…]
