  • Fat Bastard Chardonnay, Lazy Lizard Shiraz, White Trash White. These three wines—and more than 100 others—can be found in Marilyn Merlot and the Naked Grape, a celebration of the oddest wines in the world. Some have strange names, like Cat's Pee on a Gooseberry Bush. Others have bizarre artwork, like the Magritte-inspired UFO invasion. Still others have unusual production features (Braille typography, heat-sensitive inks, lenticular art, and more). Along with brilliant reproductions of the original labels, we'll feature brief stories about the origins of the wines, plus tasting notes from the author. Readers will learn about unusual vineyards (like Cleavage Creek, which donates its proceeds to breast cancer research) as well as the most innovative artists working in the wine label medium. Finally, there's an appendix of resources that will help you buy these wines—so you can try them for yourself!
