This wine's called Sh!tshow and we can't think of anything we'd rather drink now
2020 is a sh!tshow, so we might as well drink to it
The year 2020 will go down in history as a total sh!tshow and so we might as well fill our glasses with a wine that summarizes 2020 pretty well, it's called 'Sh!tshow'. The wine is produced in Wyalusing, Pennsylvania by Grovedale Winery and it is an oak-barrell aged blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Grovedale's catalog consists of over twenty different wine labels but, perhaps rather unsurprisingly, this is the wine everyone wants to taste right now. Jeff Homer, owner of Grovedale Winery, says the name was not inspired by the pandemic specifically as it simply took its inspiration from the idea of enjoying a glass of wine to help ease bad feelings.
Mr Homer said the idea was actually "of our winemaker, who had said it as a joke at first. When we floated the idea to people, they immediately started laughing. We lift a glass together to celebrate life's good moments, and we thought having a wine for the 'sh!tshow' moments of life would help bring a smile. At the time, we were thinking of situations like your friend goes through a divorce, or when your project at work fails".
The new wine's tagline is 'A fine wine for the times', pretty accurate, and the wine can be purchased online in the United States. By purchasing the wine, you'll also be helping a good cause because the winery is working with a non-profit organization and a portion of all proceeds goes towards increasing mental health awareness and helping people access assistance.
