An investigation in Italy has been launched, after some idiot thought that putting an image of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler on their wines was a good marketing idea.
One of the bottles features “the man with the silly mustache” performing the Nazi salute, another alongside the words Mein Kampf (meaning “my struggle” in German), and a third depicting Hitler posing with the late Pope John Paul II, which has been manipulated (obviously!).
The Italian authorities were alerted to the wines after American lawyer Matthew Hirsch, whilst one vacation in Italy, stumbled across the bottles in a small supermarket in the northern town of Garda. The shopkeeper allegedly told Hirsch that the bottles were part of history, “like Che Guevara.”
The mayor of Verona said the bottles will be removed from the supermarket.
I’m just throwing this out there, but I’m fairly certain that this isn’t an actual winery putting out these wines. It’s probably just some Nazi sympathizing douchebag, private labeling the bottle. Needless to say, I don’t think you’ll be reading a “Hitler wine review” on this website any time soon…This entry was posted in News and tagged Hitler wine.
