For some wine lovers, “sparkling white zinfandel” is scaryenough, but many wineries have marketed wines with truly spookylabels. Maybe the most obvious is Vampire wine.

Indian Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) Tasters at the Beverage Tasting Institute thought so too and awarded the 2003 vintage a gold medal.
