Nazi booze

The Lunardelli wine company in northern Italy has a product line called “der Führer”, called after that well-known wine aficionado, Adolf Hitler. There are several wines with labels showing Adolf doing all sorts of everyday Nazi things (saluting, waving to the crowd, ect.) and apparently this has gotten the winery into a certain amount of trouble. The Italian state prosecutor, Cuno Tarfusser (a beer drinker) says that the labels constitute a glorification of the perpetrators of crimes against humanity and had the wine labels seized.

Oddly enough there is also a line called “Il ventennio” which has loads of pictures of that old El Duce himself, Benito Mussolini. None of these labels were seized however. Check out the site at: http://www.vinilunardelli.com/scelta.html

Anyway… Humouroceros
