Default Funny Wine Labels

I have been collecting wine bottles with funny labels!

At first my wife and I were removing the labels for a scrapbook but this took too much time. I have nearly one hundred bottles in my collection.

Here are the kind I'm talking about:


Does anyone else collect these or do you know some funny ones that are out there???

I shy away from goofy label bottles. I am traditionalist when it comes to labels.

Its a darn good wine for a fair price if you ask me too.

I tried the bottle because the label made me laugh, and I was pleasantly surprised.

I was in Bermuda recently, and the restaurant listed a bottle of "Greg Noman". Just had to order it to see if it really was Greg Noman vs. Greg Norman wine. Turned out just to be a typo on the wine list.

These are great!!! I'll have to hunt these down for my collection!!!

For me it is not the taste that matters as much as the label!

Thank you!

Being from Upstate New York, we have an interesting winery named Bully Hill, with some pretty cool labels and an interesting history.
THis is one of my favorites


If ya ever get a chance to go on their tour do it, it is a great time and very laid back.

One of their mottos is "Bully Hill is Wine, Napa is Auto Parts", like I said, laid back
