Napa Valley: Wine Bottles in the Shape of… a Penis!

Phallic art is not new. First and foremost a symbol of virility in several cultures and civilizations, it might be surprising these days and even shock some people if the “phallic object” is brought out without any warning. Although, in the art of winemaking, usually more attention is paid to the content than the container, this elementary principle of oenology may well seem less certain at your next dinner party. It might no longer be a matter of talking about whether or not you are drinking a fine vintage, but determining whether the bottle, more than the wine, has awakened within you a little lustful humour or kindled strange, disreputable thoughts among your guests.
