Torres Sangre de Toro Toy Bulls- 07.02.13
Happy Meals come with toys… kid’s cereal comes with toys… but this is the first WINE i’ve seen that comes with fun toys! While in Sitka, AK at Ludvig’s Bistro, we had Torres’ Sangre de Toro and it came with a little plastic bull toy adorned on the side! It got even more interesting when the second bottle arrived, and the bulls were different! Then the waitress gave us a third from their house bottle, and it was different too! On the back of each bull is a number, and so far, we’ve seen them go up to 7, but who knows how many there are? Can you line them all up on a disc and spin them to animate a running bull? Also, out of curiosity i picked up another bottle at Bevmo when home, and between that and quick internet searches, it looks like the bulls and the ways they are attached evolve regularly. Take a peek at the bulls and packaging shifts up close on the next page!
Here’s the bottle from our wine in Alaska…
A closer peek at the Bevmo bottle ~
As you can see, the way the Bevmo one is attached is far less exciting…
See, each has a number… this is 4, 5, 6, 7.
Vintage bulls used to be attached by ribbon. These are on Etsy.
And this picture on Flickr from a wine tasting at Torres, shows bulls in a variety of colors!
