The author of wildly popular erotic romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey, E.L. James, has launched her own line of wines, according to a news release.
The wines are called, yes, Red Satin and White Silk, and they “offer the perfect combination of naughty and nice, providing readers with an experience sure to stimulate their senses,” according to the release.
The wines’ tag line is “You are Mine.”
Red Satin is “a decadent red blend” of Petite Sirah and Syrah, while White Silk is a “delicate yet rich white blend of Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc.” (As a wine-geek’s aside, the red blend makes a certain amount of sense; the white blend is a bit, shall we say, atypical.)
Sad news, at least temporarily: For now, the wine is being sold online only at www.FiftyShades Wine.com — but that website does not list Ohio among the states to which the wine can be shipped.
Tied up by bureaucracy, again.
But sometime soon, the wines will become available on Wine.com, which does ship to Ohio.
