Everything you always wanted to know about wine but never dared to ask

Are you tired of classic wine labels with a Château design and an aristocratic sounding cuvée name? You're lucky, no more gloom, you'll be able to surprise your guests! In recent years, some winegrowers, such as Fabien Jouves, who lives on the slopes of Cahors, have decided to stand out with well-found puns and a good dose of nerve! Here is our Top 5 most unusual wine labels:

The label "Tout bu, or not tout bu"

Loïc Roure is at the head of the ten hectares of Domaine du Possible. With such an evocative name, it was impossible to do in the classic label side: "Charivari", "Tout bu or not tout bu", "c'est pas la mer à boire". Wines as delicious to drink as they are to show to friends!

The "Canoe Gaillac" label

In Languedoc Roussillon, we find Domaine la Sorga by Antony Tortul, a winegrower with many years of experience in the wine industry throughout France. He remains very demanding as to the origin of his vines and their treatment since his wide range is composed only of natural or biodynamic wines. He automatically wins the prize for the most "natural" play on words with his label "canoë gaillac"!

The label "Go get drunk"

Camille and Mathias Marquet are two young winegrowers who have settled in the Bergerac appellation. These lovers of the land and the vines took over Château Lestignac in 2008. "Buddies as pigs", "Go get drunk", "Eyes wine shut" and many other inspired puns to discover on their labels!

The label "No bla blah blah"

Created in 2005 by a fan of Brassens Alban Michel, Domaine Les Sabots d'Hélène owes its name to the famous song. The small property of 5 hectares is cultivated organically in the Corbières à Feuilla. A watchword in the field: no frills, simplicity and especially no blah blah blah blah. And it gives such nice labels! Happiness!

The Grololo wine label

Isabelle, Wendy, Jo and Joseph created the Pithon-Paillé estate as a family. Wondering what the relationship between the label and the wine is? Groslot (grolleau) is a minority but historical grape variety from Anjou that produces wines with lots of fruit, and therefore generous (just like the label!). Nice idea, isn't it?
