I have a confession to make. I’m not much of a wine drinker. I can feel you all staring at me like I must be the biggest weirdo ever. It’s pretty much the same reaction I get when I tell people I don’t drink coffee. So, now I have confirmed your suspicions. I am obviously an extraterrestrial.
I also must have been switched at birth because my parents are pretty serious about drinking wine. They have a giant wine cooler refrigerator in their kitchen, and during the quarantine they got into the habit of posting photos on Facebook of the wine they were enjoying with dinner each night. So, I suppose I have them and their obsession with wine to thank for the latest collection of products that I’ve shared on Zazzle and Redbubble.
Designed with wine lovers like my parents in mind this collection features my own hand-drawn style guide to wines. Okay, so maybe its not as useful for identifying wines as a detailed book, and probably my doodle style illustrations of wine bottles aren’t going to help you much on your next trip to the liquor store, but just think how cute you’ll look in your own wine guide graphic t-shirt!
Or maybe you’re like me, you’re not a wine connoisseur, but you are desperate for the perfect gift for a wine lover in your life. If you’re like me and separated from your wine-drinking friends and relatives finding decent wine-themed gifts that you can ship to them can be a challenge. If you’re in the US, the different liquor laws in each state can make shipping wines a difficult and sometimes impossible proposition. But the good news is there are no prohibitions on shipping useful wine themed gifts like a personalized insulated wine sack featuring an all-over pattern of wine bottles that they’ll be proud to use while transporting wines to the homes of friends or to BYOB restaurants.
Red wines, white wines, blush wines and sparkling wines are all included in my wine id chart design. And while I didn’t include every variety of wine out there–I had no idea just how many different varieties of wine there were until I started doing some research for this design–there are 15 different varieties of wine depicted in my cute and simple illustrations with the type of wine named below each drawing.
So if you take great pride in knowing your cabernet from your merlot, or if you’re jus looking for the perfect gift or accessory for someone who loves fine wines, check out my collection of wine lovers gear and gifts on Zazzle or on Redbubble.
