Wine Games: Who’s the producer?

#1 Post by Kirk.Grant » December 7th, 2019, 7:22 am

I saw this on IG and I thought it might be a fun game to play here? Post a photo of a wine label and then everyone has a chance to start.

I thought it might be neat to see how creative people get. I’m sure there will be some that are more common than others. Anyone have a guess to who this Benchmark producer (for the region) is?

Nice!

I drink Eyrie and didn’t get it!

This thread is a wonderful idea!

What is man, when you come to think upon him, but a minutely set, ingenious machine for turning, with infinite artfulness, the fine red wine of Shiraz into urine?

Oooh I want to play but traveling next 2 weeks. I will be on the guessing end as they pop up until I can post some of my own. Great idea for us nerds.

No. This one might be a bit too obscure, so I can drop clues if wanted.

He is from Chinon and supposedly raved about the wines back in the sixteenth century. That’s around the time Pepys was raving about Ho Bryan, “that hath a good and most particular taste that I never met with.”

Love the wine, love the label. The original art label is at the Mouton art museum, a very cool visit if ever in Pauilliac.

This.

Sorry, Jim, it was a trick to lure the Mouton choice, and you fell for it! [wow.gif] [wow.gif]

Siran is now back to a traditional label. Mouton is Mouton.

Siran is now back to a traditional label.
Yes, since 2005. I know the family well, and used to represent their Philippine companies when Edouard Miailhe was still mainly based in Manila (he moved his family back to Bdx some years ago). Siran’s ‘05 back label, the English text was written by me.

Actually, the current lettering of Siran’s label reminds me of that of Pichon Lalande which Ed’s aunt used to own.

At first I was really gonna challenge you, just showing the drawing in the middle, but decided to give more context. I redacted the producer name and region.

PS. Oh shoot, you cheaters don’t enlarge the photo, my computer redacting skills evidently suck. Lol. Play fair.
