Liven Udes?

What? What is that word, this "liven udes?" It's printed on the bottom of this new wine label. Is it a Swedish pickled fish that you serve at Christmas time in a sour cream sauce? A garment that you wear under your lederhosen? A Latin word inscribed over a court house door? What on earth is Liven Udes? Hmmm - - I wonder what it means...?

Walla Walla Village Winery, favored by air guitarists everywhere, will soon release their new red blend, named Bordello Red! This 2005 table red was inspired by Walla Walla’s infamous Madame, Josephine "Dutch Jo" Wolfe. In the early 1900's Madame "Dutch Jo" ran a bordello on the second floor in what is now the tasting room of the Walla Walla Village Winery building. The label will still feature the very recognizable Walla Walla Village Winery sun designed especially for them by rock and roll artist Stanley Mouse. Does the brick on the background of the label happen to look familiar? If it does, then you were hanging out at the old McFeely's Tavern and Hotel too much.

So how does this soon-to-be-released wine taste? Well, here’s what the back of the label says regarding this predominantly Bordeaux-style red: "Bordello Red is a voluptuous, titillating blend that will penetrate your palate and leave you lusting for more." Heh-heh (in my best Beavis of Beavis and Butthead voice), they said, "penetrating..."

Anywhooo - - stay tuned for the release date and more about Bordello Red from Walla Walla Village Winery and it will also be available through me, The Walla Walla Wine Woman.

(Pssst - - have you figured out what liven udes means?)

Catie, I'm pretty sure Liven Udes is an anagram for Ed Unveils.... :)
