Drinking wine and watching Saturday Night Live are activities that go hand in hand together. So it makes perfect sense that the creators of the longest-running sketch show on television are now releasing their own brand of booze.
Three of these bottles are named after popular characters from the show: Debbie Downer South Eastern Australian Chardonnay ($20), Stefon Beaujolais ($18), and the Californians Monterey County Merlot ($20). Those are all great sketches to name wines after, but it’s a shame that the Hot Tub Love-ahs don’t have their own bottle (or bota bag). It’s also slightly surprising that the Californians are associated with a Central Coast merlot and not a sparkling white, and that Stefon is helping hawk beaujolais, since he’s really more of a vodka and Red Bull kind of guy.
These three character-themed wines plus the SNL California Red Blend ($20) are available for purchase on Lot 18.
