Wine Description Vandalism!

Someone sent me this picture – someone vandalized a wine description on a store shelf – hilarious!

‏@Filosofizer is the person behind the picture above – great job, thanks for sharing – and it reminded me of a very funny Monty Python bit from one of their books.

Monty Python comedy

This book from Monty Python includes a few of their wine reviews, like these:

“This is not a wine for drinking. This is a wine for putting down and walking away!”

And this is one of my favorites:

“A Fine Regurgitator!”

Here is Monty Python’s hilarious review of Australian Wines:

Monty Python Australian wine guide

“Château Blue” –

Château Blue, too, has won many prizes; not least for its taste, and its lingering afterburn.

“Old Smokey 1968” –

Old Smokey 1968 has been compared favourably to a Welsh claret, whilst the Australian Wino Society thoroughly recommends a 1970 Coq du Rod Laver, which, believe me, has a kick on it like a mule: 8 bottles of this and you’re really finished. At the opening of the Sydney Bridge Club, they were fishing them out of the main sewers every half an hour.

“Perth Pink” –

Of the sparkling wines, the most famous is Perth Pink. This is a bottle with a message in, and the message is ‘beware’. This is not a wine for drinking, this is a wine for laying down and avoiding.

“Château Chunder” –

Quite the reverse is true of Château Chunder, which is an appellation contrôlée, specially grown for those keen on regurgitation; a fine wine which really opens up the sluices at both ends.

“Opens Up The Sluices At Both Ends!”

That might be my favorite line of all – here is Python audio of the entire review:

Monty-Python comedy sketch

Monty Python was a great comic troupe, and their wine reviews are hilarious – toast to the Pythons!

Python member John Cleese has done even more work with wine as well:

So you can see, even the Pythons know how to enjoy life – even when making fun of it!

Here is the kind of wine list you really want to see – nothing but honesty and laughs when you peruse this list to choose a nice glass of wine:


Thanks to the “WonderTonic” tumbler for this hilarious list!

If you want to enjoy a movie with your glass of wine, look no further than here:

The film that destroyed the Merlot industry is really a love letter to wine – read all about it here:


Alex and I were lucky enough to go on vacation to the Chateauneuf-du-Pape wine region of France….
