A wine for humans who love cats! The Athazagoraphobic Cat comes from the d’Arenberg Winery in the McLaren Vale, on the south coast of Australia.
The wine is a blend of Sagrantino/Cinsault but who cares? Have you seen the label? The spinning cylindrical wine label of the Athazagoraphobic Cat pays homage to early animation techniques. When turned, it looks like the cat is walking beside a human.
Selling for $200 a bottle, this is truly a fine feline wine for cat fanatics.
What is Athazagoraphobia? Not to be confused with Ailurophobia, which is the fear of cats, Athazagoraphobia is the fear of being forgotten, ignored or replaced.
The Athazagoraphobic Cat is not d’Arenberg’s only tribute to cats. The Cenosilicaphobis Cat is a harmonious blend of two interesting varieties, with bright acidity and lingering flavour.
The d’Arenberg Cube offer an ultimate winery experience Downunder. The building is inspired by the complexities and puzzles of winemaking. Visitors can enjoy a wine tasting with a view at the tasting room Cube on the top floor or explore a surrealist exhibition and sale featuring 25 authentic bronze sculptures and graphic artworks of Salvador Dali, who is well known for his three flying cats.
