More wine puns from the Twitterverse #winemusicals


Happy Friday! A little light programming for your today. Yesterday, I spotted a meme on Twitter using the hashtag #indecisivemusicals that included such suggestions as “Rent … no maybe we should buy.” With the Andrew Lloyd Webber wine auction coming up this weekend, I wondered on Twitter if we needed some #winemusicals? I proposed “The Full Monte Bello” and “Gentlemen Prefer Brunes et Blondes.” Here are some of other chuckle (or groan?) worthy suggestions:

“Oaklahoma!” @ablegrape (by Rolland & Hammerstein?)
“My Fair Lieu-dit” @ablegrape
“Sunday in the Park with Nuits Saint Georges” @felixsalmon
“Guys and Dolcettos” @howardggoldberg
“St Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” @davidwlamb
“The Musar Man” @Tri_pops

Search for more and add your own in the comments or on Twitter. And let us know if you hear of the opening of any of these shows, presumably well off-Broadway.

    “Mary’s Poppin’ Corks”
    “Priscilla Queen of the Dessert Wines”
    “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Darkenuša”

  5. Loire you doing?

  6. How about…

    CATS (pee)

    Okay, that’s pretty bad. Sorry.

  7. Is this the production starring Corton MacRae? He does such a great version of “Sherry with the Fringe on Top”

  8. Ha, glad you are getting into it!

    Jill- I had a similar thought with Catpeetown, the musical… starring Sauvignon Blanc

  9. Very amusing- Happy Friday!

    West Bank Story

    A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Direct to Consumer Wine Symposium

    Sweeney Todd: The Demon of Barbera

    Cabernet starring Liza Minnelli

    A Destemming Line

  10. Tempted to stretch this into opera…

    Der Rosé ‘n’ Kavalier?
    The Magic Champagne Flute?

  11. Scheurebe the Musical

    The Sound of Muscat (Edelweiss, edelfäule)

    The Phantom of Opus One (Act I of the Opera)

  12. Madame Buttery Tokaji

  13. The Little Merlotmaid

  14. On Twitter, I had “Les Miserablegrape” for Doug as well as “The Phantom of the Epernay”.

    Though not strictly a musical, my favorite Broadway/wine mashup is “The Pupitre of the Penis”.

  15. Seems to me that, while Randall gets plenty of attention already, “Bonnydoon” is the logical stand-in for Brigadoon.

    I’d add 1776: Directed by Hardy Rodenstock!

    Perhaps Robert Parker’s favorite: Man of La Landonne

  16. Miss Saignee?

  17. Made my day :-)

  18. What can you drink to excess, and still walk upright?
    Plumb wine!

  19. Julius Caesar Domenisco was an inventor with a patent on a process for brewing beer and wine. But then someone else developed a better way, and as brewers converted, he lost a lot of royalty income. When his best friend converted, he said “Et tu brew thus?”

  20. What would you call a certified 50 year old bottle of fine Beaujolais?

  21. Olivia Nebbiolo Jaén and John Touriga in Gris (is the word).
