Desnobbing Wine

These Glorious Wine Products Encourage Excessive Vino Drinking

— August 19, 2013 — TH Video
Traditional wine glasses, with their sleek stems and delicate structure, often exude an attitude of extreme wealth and high snobbery; with these hilarious wine products however, wine drinkers can transform wine drinking from an inaccessible, aristocratic activity into a fun end-of-day ritual for the everyman.

Trend Hunter editor Courtney Scharf has picked out her favorite wines and wine accessories that are sure to make even the most upperclass wine drinker giggle with amusement. One of her top picks is a dark red chianti, based on the wine referenced by infamous fictional serial killer Hannibal Lecter in the Oscar-winning drama 'The Silence of the Lambs.' In the film, Lecter alludes to eating a man's liver with some fava beans and "a nice chianti." Pouncing on this morbidly humorous reference, some winemakers have created a chianti that would make the perfect gift for film lovers.

Another of Courtney's favorite picks is a wine glass that has been designed to tip over every time it's set down. This ensures that wine drinkers never set their glasses down, forcing them to drink as much as possible and, therefore, leading to hilarity and many alcohol-induced hi-jinks.

With these wine products, wine drinking doesn't have to be reserved for grey-haired professors and pearl-draped dowager countesses. Indeed, with wine accessories like these, even college students can experience the awesome effects of a solid bottle of vino.
