Banned in 'bama

Are you morally offended by this wine label? According to an article I just caught on Canadian Press, it violated the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board's rules against displaying "a person posed in an immoral or sensuous manner." (Too bad nobody told the French ad industry over 100 years ago.)

The California vintner, Hahn Family Wines, doesn't mind too much, though. They say sales and interest in less prudish states are really popping.


  1. I find it offensive because it appears to condone drinking & operating a vehicle. ;-)

  2. Plus, she isn't wearing a helmet. Won't someone please think of the children?
