The author of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” E.L. James, announced plans to sell wines inspired by the series’ three novels dubbed Red Satin and White Silk, with the help of California winemakers.
Enjoying a novel-themed wine
It all seems a bit gimmicky, but Jame’s official website confirmed the speculations.
“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,” according to her message on the website. “I hope my readers curl up with a glass as they enjoy the romance between Anastasia and Christian.”
Inspired by the best-seller
The bottles come decorated with a simple black label framed by a metallic diamond-shaped pattern and have a tagline saying “You. Are. Mine.”
According to the website’s statement, The Grey Red Satin is a mix of Petite Sirah and Syrah that has been aged in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels. The wine supposedly has flavors of black cherry, cocoa powder, caramel, vanilla, leather and clove spice.
Each bottle is available for $17.99 or together in a package for $45.99.
