50 Shades Of Grey Wine Is A Thing, This Is Not A Drill

Just what this world needs: more 50 Shades of Grey-related products.

But hey, this 50 Shades of Grey wine comes from author E.L. James herself — what a treat! Going for $17.99 per bottle, there are only two wines in the collection: one red, appropriately (or maybe not so appropriately) named “Red Satin” and one white, “White Silk.”

Red Satin is a 2009 vintage blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah described as having notes of “black cherry, cocoa powder, creamy caramel and vanilla, leather and clove spice.” Sexy. White Silk is a 2012 vintage blend of Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc; here you’ll find “floral aromatics of lychee, honey and pear lead off this white blend, tempered by flavors of crisp grapefruit, mineral and lush pear with a faint hint of butterscotch.”

If you’re really into this, you can buy a case of either variety for $215.88. You can also design your own gift set. Say you want one bottle of Red Satin, one bottle of White Silk, and a box set of the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy. Add some fancy packaging, and that will set you back $73.79 plus shipping.

Here’s what the author had to say about it all:

Wine plays an important role in Fifty Shades of Grey, adding to the sensuality that pervades a number of encounters between the characters. 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 Fifty Shades trilogy. I hope all of you curl up with a glass as you enjoy the romance between Anastasia and Christian.

Poor grapes.

One thought on “50 Shades Of Grey Wine Is A Thing, This Is Not A Drill

  1. “Notice the overtones of leather and sweat. I also detect a hint of emptiness and long dead self-respect contrasted nicely with stretched tie-in marketing pandering to fans of the book. It’s quite hideous. I think I’ll have another glass.”
