Blood of Grapes Wine Bottle by Constantin Bolimond

View all 5 Photos

The avid wine collector might be surprised to find the Blood of Grapes wine bottle incompatible with and undoubtedly more sinister than other stately glassware. With a wicked sense of humor indeed, Belarusian designer Constantin Bolimond reminds all that the tempting taste of wine comes at a price – paid by the grapes. The black-and-white bottle is shaped like an anatomical heart complete with superior vena cava and aorta, the interiors of the vessels painted a shocking red. An appropriate tagline, “from the heart of France,” continues to play on the cardiac theme, as does the red label that guarantees the drink’s Rhesus factor to be Rh+. Here’s a toast to bleeding grapes, and cups overflowing!
