Lipstick on a Pig Wines

Yes, it’s true. The expression “Lipstick on a Pig,” which has recently risen from occasional use to the subject of political debate, has gone one step further. From chatter at the water cooler to the wine cooler, people are talking about “Lipstick on a Pig” wines.

There are four varietals of the wine and each one is available with a red or blue label. The wine will be released on Oct. 1, about a month before the U.S. election, so it’s promoted as a way for wine enthusiasts to “vote” their opinions with their palate.

I first read about this new form of a public opinion poll on Twitter, and now you can read the details in the blog Must Love Wine. I know this post does not fall under my usual topic of Washington state wine or northwest wine. But I just had to share this with you!

Cheers!
