Lunardelli's Vinegar

Tasteless, nazi related advertising can't just be claimed by a Mumbai restaurant owner only. In 1995 winemaker Alessandro Lunardelli in Coloredo di Prato in Friuli Venezia Giuliastarted a "historical series" of quality wine. The labels "will remind us of the lives of famous figures in Italian and world history". The series "F├╝hrerwein" is a collection of 20 images related to the Third Reich. The Mussolini series only has 18 labels, "il communismo" six. Hitler can be found in other collections as well.

Bottles with these labels have become cult collector's items.

May Lundarelli's wine turn to vinegar on the drinker's tongue, may the grapes in the vineyard turn into raisins in the early summer sun.

European activists demand ban on the labels.
