    [​IMG] Made you look! I have one of these bottles of wine as part of my chicken/rooster collection. I don't care for wine, but I love the pretty label. Even the foil covering the cork is embossed with a rooster.

    La Vieille Ferme wines' labels look like a colored pen & ink drawing of a pair of chickens. I've considered soaking off this label and mounting it on a square of illustration board and framing it. Has anybody here done this without damaging the labels?

    I give that wine to my neighbors who tend to our chickens when we go away. It's such a pretty bottle, and reasonable too. But let's not talk about tasty wine when I'm on the South Beach Diet, okay?

    I do like that label (the artwork, never tried the wine). [​IMG] I've never tried soaking the label off of a bottle either, but that gives me an idea for all those bottles we have that still have the label on them. A couple of them had Celtic knotwork shields on the label that I thought were really cool.

    I've tried soaking labels off too, but with no luck.

    Oh wow, for a second I thought CG was back!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Seriously though, I've had that wine and didn't really care for it. Is it just me?

    eggcetra--I haven't opened this bottle, so I can't comment on the taste. The taste of wine is just plain yucky to me, although I add wine to my homemade spaghetti sauce. That's the only way I like my wine..in tomato sauce and over noodles!

    I'm of the blush persuasion. Reds tend to be too bitter and dry, whites too.... I dunno, sweet maybe?
