Loki Pinot Noir

Press Release 4/1/2013 – 1337 Wine

1337 Wine is proud to announce the upcoming release of Loki Pinot Noir. This will be the first of hopefully more wines to be released under the 1337 Wine label.

When asked why the name Loki for the wine Mark Fusco, owner of 1337 Wine, said, “the Pinot Noir grape is notoriously difficult to grow and due to the capricious nature of the grape I felt this would be an appropriate name for it.”

While not Mark’s first choice of varietal for a wine, he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with Olof Vineyards out of Oregon. Oregon Pinot Noirs are Mark’s preferred style of American Pinot Noir. Olof uses the 413 Clone in their vineyards. Located in the Rogue Valley AVA in Oregon this clone does exceptionally well.

1413 cases of the wine will be produced at a price of $41 per bottle. Olof will be handling orders and shipping the wine for 1337 Wine.

For more information contact Mark on his website http://www.1337wine.com/

APRIL FOOLS!!!!

Ok, so here are the clues. First Loki. C’mon that should be obvious ;). If not, Loki is the “Trickster” God in Norse mythology. I chose Pinot Noir because it is one of the ‘trickiest’ grapes to grow.

Next Olof Vineyards is really Fool Vineyards.

Clone 413? April 2013.

1413 cases. European dating of 4/1/13.

$41? Should be obvious.

Rogue Valley is a real Oregon AVA. I was lucky that there is an AVA in Oregon that evokes Loki and his trickster nature.

Now, don’t screw it up on Facebook and reveal this is an April Fool’s joke. Save those comments for here!

Now that you’re here, check out some of the past episode. No new show this week, but I am interviewing someone today in Austin for next week.

Repost and retweet 😉
