Don’t Wine About 50 Shades of Grey

I guess it’s possible you haven’t heard enough about the phenomenally successful empire being created by E.L. James. It began with her debut novel Fifty Shades of Grey and has spread to further successful books, a sometimes controversial film and now… wine?

Actually, the wine was introduced in the autumn of 2013, but somehow we missed the announcement. From a press release:
Personally blended by author E L James along with winemakers in California’s premium North Coast appellation, Fifty Shades of Grey Wine will allow fans to further explore the world of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey and personally experience James' passion for wine, showcased throughout the novels. Infusing fine wine cues and storyline elements into this carefully crafted collection, Fifty Shades of Grey Wine blends perfectly James' knowledge of wine and romantic tastes.
"Wine plays an important role in Fifty Shades of Grey, adding to the sensuality that pervades a number of scenes," said E L James. "I've always had a penchant for good wine, so combining two of my passions to blend Red Satin and White Silk was a natural extension of the series. I hope my readers curl up with a glass as they enjoy the romance between Anastasia and Christian."
What’s next? Kill a Mockingbird Meritage or Harry Potter Petit Syrah? No. We didn’t think so, either.
