Show Off Your Terribly Awesome Wine Slogan For A Chance To Win A Wine Tee From!

Vinted on April 3, 2012 binned in giveaways

It’s been a while since we’ve done a giveaway, and so when I was contacted by to potentially partner up and give away one of their wine-themed t-shirts I couldn’t resist.

This is primarily because they combine wine with one of my closet indulgences: slogans so bad that they become fantastic. I’m not at all religious, but I’ve long been fascinated with the epically, awesomely terrible slogans posted on church billboards; they are just so heinously good (if that makes sense). For example, some gems that I’ve encountered during my driving travels:

“If you give the devil a ride, sooner or later he’s gonna want to drive.”

“God doesn’t want shares of your life; He wants controlling interest!”

“God answers ‘Knee Mail’”

That last one is sooooo wonderfully terrible!

Anyway, you’ve got a chance to win a free, customizable wine t-shirt from just by commenting on this here post! To maximize the fun (for me, anyway!), to become eligible you need only comment here with your favorite terribly awesome wine slogan. Ideally, you’ll come up with puns as wonderfully bad as the ones those churches are able to churn out, only wine-related.

I’m thinking along the lines of “Making good wine is a skill; making fine wine is an art; unless your name is Rudy Kurniawan, in which case it’s probably a federal offense!” or “I once had budding career in wine growing, but the bad economy green-harvested it.” You gotta admit, those are so bad that they could become endearing… anyway…

In one week I will randomly select a winner from the commenters, and contact them via email with the details on how to claim their Tee.

So get commentin’ and show off your creative side!

Cheers – and good luck!

  • Elise

    This is Champagne-specific but pretty trashy:

    Champagne is like a lover. He may not be my first choice but I'm not gonna kick 'im outta bed!

    • 1WineDude

      Elise – It might be my first choice actually! :)

      • Elise

        Agree but only certain champagnes. There are definitely wines that would get kicked out of bed – Yellow Tail anyone? – but probably even the most average champagne would still make the cut. Talk to me about good grower champagne though and it's a whole other story!

        • 1WineDude

          Elise – +1 on the Grower Champers!

  • Fred

    "Sutter Home Wines. Taste the Commitment." Oy.

    I like my wine like I like my women –
    dark, luscious and all over my lap while I'm driving.

    • 1WineDude

      Bradley – in my experience, the best kind of car in which to do that is… someone else's!

  • Mark F

    All I do is wine wine wine!

  • Mark F

    One did one grape say to the other grape?
    "Does my skin make me look tannic?"
