Heart-Shaped Wine Bottle

“Blood of grapes from the heart of France.” Constantin Bolimond’s wine bottle design reminds viewers of the nation that perfected wine. I’m not sure how his reference to the Rh blood group fits wine. What do you think? Link | Designer’s Website

Wine Cork Portraits By Scott Gundersen

Somebody must have told Scott Gundersen to put a cork in it when he started his artistic career because he’s been working almost exclusively in corks ever since.

French Cows Drink Wine

Studies show that happy animals provide better-tasting meat. Taking a cue from that idea, Languedoc-Roussillon winemaker Jean-Charles Tastavy and cattle farmer Claude Chaballier decided to experiment by giving beef cattle some wine with their feed. “The cows appreciated the menu and ate with enjoyment,” Tastavy said. And now, the French cows are getting a daily oenological infusion [...]
