Hello Kitty Wine Is For Grown-Ups Who Don't Want to Grow Up
There are adults who grow up to appreciate their childhoods and those who simply never want to leave it behind. If you find yourself in the latter, you may love this new line of Hello Kitty wine.
Sanrio, the masterminds behind the cat that's not actually a cat, have partnered with Torti Winery in Italy to hand-pick grapes for a Hello Kitty rosé, sparkling Hello Kitty white wine and other classy options.
According to the LA Times, Torti-loving employees of Sanrio contacted the family's vineyard to make the pretty-in-pink batch that is definitely not suitable for children.
“My father and my sister take care of the production, from the soil to picking the grapes,” said Torti. “We produce a special bottle with a heart, only for Hello Kitty,'" says Patrizia Torti.
So where can Hello Kitty's litter of superfans get their hands on the uber-exclusive beverage? Antonello Ristorante in Santa Ana, CA.
Customers can order a glass, a bottle or purchase bottles to go. And if a trip to California isn't in your immediate future, have no fear: there are plans to expand distribution.
Brace yourselves, America. The idea of enjoying a Hello Kitty brunch mimosa may become a reality in the not-too-distant future.
