Although Count Dracula may have only drunk blood, the man behind the cape, Bela Lugosi, was quite a wine connoisseur. With the creation of Lugosi Wines, the Lugosi family pays tribute to their patriarch, a man of distinction, while acknowledging the icon that will forever be – Dracula.
Here are the full details from LugosiWines.com:
Continuing the family’s enthusiasm for wine inspired by Bela Lugosi, Lugosi Wines will seek varietals sourced from superior wine-growing regions. Winemakers will create exceptional wines from distinct appellations to assemble a portfolio of the Bela Lugosi brand wines that will celebrate the best varietals from around the world. With each new release added to Lugosi Wines’ offerings, the Bela Lugosi collection will exemplify the distinct qualities of Bela Lugosi, the man, in a unique compilation of outstanding wines.
Lugosi Wines is proud to announce the release of the first vintage of the signature series wines: ’07 Malbec. The Domingo Hermanos Winery in Argentina produced this vintage exclusively for Lugosi Wines. The vineyards are located in Salta, Argentina, and, at 7,200 feet altitude, are among the highest in the world. The label artwork is by Argentinean citizen Bruno Fernandez. Only 1,200 hand-numbered bottles were produced.
