President Trump’s Twitter musings have inspired fans, foes and now — its own wine.
The new “Covfefe 2015 Red Blend” is being introduced by the New York-based City Winery. The wine, which will set vino lovers back $37 a bottle, pairs well with “white bread, a ton of baloney, and Russian dressing,” according to its creator.
The name, of course, was inspired by Trump’s seemingly errant tweet in May, which stated, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.” After the tweet was deleted, Trump wrote on Twitter: “Who can figure out the true meaning of ‘covfefe’ ??? Enjoy!”
City Winery CEO and founder Michael Dorf tells ITK, “We felt better than just whining about our current president, we should make some in his honor.”
The wine, which can be purchased online and ships to New York, California, Florida and Washington, D.C., has a “nose of dark and red fruits — plum and dark cherries, candied raspberries — with floral notes of peony and rose petals,” according to a product description.
City Winery says 20 percent of the sale of each bottle will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union, which is fighting the Trump administration in court on a plethora of issues.
“Sometimes everyone gets frustrated because we can’t think to bring common sense to politics,” Dorf says. “The only way is with fun and humor, and that was the motivation for this bottle of wine.”
