To be, or not to be, that is the question....which subby answered by leaving "be" out of "to be made in California".

Beer, wine, and liquor, especially.

Had a guy recently come in and order a Bud Light Lime. We don't carry it, so I offered him a Bud Light with a lime, like the pilgrims drank it (just a dumb joke I always say). He switched to Grey Goose. Dude was a marketing major's wet dream.

Newcastle has a good sense of humor about it:

Unless there's a red blend called "red like the blood of an HIV postive barebacking queer", I am unaware of any homophobia in the California wine industry. I mean.... It's the wine industry.

Isn't wine already gay friendly?

Marine1: Kind of what I was wondering.


And here's my camp.  There's non-gay-friendly wine?  From the gays I've known, alcohol in general is gay-friendly.

Personally, I find it straight-friendly, too.

Well, this is at odds with the gay-hostile cheese industry.
 
2013-06-16 07:28:03 PM  
 Obviously this gay wine must be made with some kind of super-homosexual alcohol that will no doubt turn the imbiber amorously toward their own sex.
 
2013-06-16 07:28:06 PM  
Maybe gay friendly wine just has a different shaped bottle.

Not enough attention has been paid to this under-represented market. I'm, for one, glad to see the gay market getting some much deserved marketing dollars.

I'm not surprised most of you haven't heard of gay wines. For all your supposed worldliness, you Farkers sure know jack shiat about minority cultures in this country.

So, I actually had Same Sex Meritage (the wine) a few weeks ago and it was really good. If the message is gimmicky, try it for the taste anyway

Gay friendly?  I object to this label as it insinuates that unless you put a pro-gay label on your wine you are not gay friendly (or gay unfriendly). Do we now have to have a problem with politically agnostic businesses? Especially small businesses like the many California wineries?

Obviously,  you're including Chick'fil'a in that, right?  Plus all the companies that vowed to fire any Democrat / liberal working there.

Lot of this just comes down to being a publicity stunt, though.  There is just so much freaking wine out there; no one would likely have heard of this if it wasn't for the angle they were going for.
