You know that we here at Lightning Labels love a good label, so, we thought, why not have a funny wine labels celebration? A label party might sound strange to you, but it’s a great way to get your friends together and have some laughs. The only rule is that you must bring a wine bottle with a funny label. Because many wineries opt to give their blends creative monikers and humorous labels, we’re sure you’ll get some you’ve never seen before. Here are a couple ideas to start off your adhesive celebration: 1. Toad Hollow Wines from <a href=http://www.toadhollow.com>Toad Hollow</a> seek to be delicious and affordable. Each bottle includes whimsical artwork that is reminiscent of a child's storybook. The name originates from the company's founders, two old friends known as Dr. Toad and The Dancing Badger. 2. House Wine Everyone at your party will love the simple, no-frills approach that House Wine takes. House Wine is the main brand of The Magnificent Wine Company. With these blends, they aim to make top wines available at low prices. The labels are sparse and effective, featuring a childlike house drawing and bold lettering. 3. Girly Girl Girly Girl wines are the perfect choice for a night with your girlfriends. Their bottles are feminine and elegant, and each blend features a different girl. You'll love meeting Kayla, the Merlot, or Mia, the Chardonnay. Enjoy a bottle of Girly Girl on the weekends or after a long day at work. 4. Red Truck Red Truck wines have classic American appeal. The bold labels feature retro trucks in front of a beautiful, blue sky and plenty of humorous car puns. Blended wines including Red Truck, Pink Truck, White Truck and Green Truck are all popular choices. 5. Menage a Trois The name might be slightly irreverent, but there's nothing inappropriate about a wine with such a delicious blend. The Red, White and Rose blends from Menage a Trois each include three different grape varieties that come together to create a complex flavor. 6. Oops For years, the Carmenere grapes used in this Chilean wine were mistakenly believed to be Merlot grapes. When the mistake was discovered in 1994, the company decided to make the most of it and named their wine Oops. Labels feature a clever news story design that announces the discovery of the lost grape. 7. Goats Do Roam South African wine company Goats Do Roam prides itself on creating unique blends from the finest vineyards. The name originates from a discerning herd of goats owned by vintner Charles Back. When they were let out into the vineyard one day, the goats chose some of the finest and ripest grapes. 8. Elephant on a Tightrope Elephant on a Tightrope is a classy, fun French wine that your guests will love. The winemakers chose elephants to represent their brand because elephants have great balance and a striking sense of smell. Of course, these qualities are important components of great wine. 9. Marilyn Merlot Marilyn Merlot and other Marilyn wines pay homage to the legendary actress. Each blend exudes glamour and features a unique photo of the timeless Hollywood siren. 10. Mad Housewife The people at Mad Housewife believe that wine should be enjoyable and relaxing. The line is geared toward women who are looking to wind down at the end of the day. Each bottle features a photo of the brand's snarky, no-nonsense housewife.
