What wine are you planning to serve at your next classy dinner party? Why not pick up a bottle of Lesizza Gold 22K – a wine packed full of 22-karat edible gold flakes? Did I mention it’s from the famed vineyards of Slovenia?
Lesizza isn’t a joke; it’s an Indiegogo campaign. Egon and Susana Lesizza from Dobrovo, Slovenia, are trying to raise $35,000 to make their dream of having their own gold-filled private label wine a reality. Though maybe if they took all that gold and invested into their company instead of pointlessly shoving it into their wine, they wouldn’t need an Indiegogo campaign.
The pair describe Lesizza Gold 22K, which comes in both a Chardonnay and a rosé , as “the magnificent fusion of elegance, taste and exclusivity … a high quality wine with a great aroma and flavor combined with 22-karat edible gold” – tasting notes almost as vague as the benefits of having edible gold in your wine.
