When I think of fine wine, I also think of dogs — who doesn't? Throw in Michael Vick, and you have an amusing little wine with a full-bodied locker room bouquet and just a hint of flea powder. Welcome to Carivintas Winery, a Southern California company which markets Vicktory Dogs Wine; 22 varieties with labels picturing the dogs that were rescued from Vick's Bad Newz Kennels (do not serve with fish). Each label depicts a different dog at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, and the set goes for $672, or $40 a bottle. Each label also has a brief story about the dog. Ten percent of each sale goes to Best Friends.
“Everybody has their favorite and people are buying for different reasons,” said Matt Hahn, co-owner of Carivintas Winery. “Some people will drink the wine, some will never open the bottle.”
I prefer collie, but if pit bull is all that's available, I guess I have no choice. I hope you know my dinner party is ruined, however. Some are just fine with it, though. Also, Deuce of Davenport wonders, will these wines be sold at The Tasting Room? Vick Dogs Featured On Wine Labels [AJC Pets]
