Depending on where in this big ‘ol world you are, the customs associated with drinking wine have always fascinated me.
For example, in Japan, it’s not uncommon to have wine “on the rocks”. Seeing I’ve had vanilla ice cream and rosé I guess I need to try adding ice cubes to my cabernet next time. And, did you know that in the Ukraine, whoever steals the brides shoe at a wedding holds the power to request that other guests drink from said shoe? Of course, I have gathered that a wine glass is taped to the shoe so people actually don’t drink from the brides shoe. And, then there’s the wine fight of Spain, where on the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, people pelt each other with wine and have buckets of wine thrown on each other as well as ben sprayed by wine from trucks! Talk about a fun wine party – eh?!
Speaking of fun and wine, have y’all seen the new Living Wine Augmented Reality Labels on The Walking Dead Blood Red Blend and The Walking Dead Cabernet Sauvignon bottles?
If you haven’t, the next time you find yourself at Kroger, Ralph’s, or Fred Meyer, look for The Walking Dead wine bottles.
Why should you bring home for The Walking Dead wine bottles?
When you come across them, make sure you download the Living Wine Labels Augmented Reality App on your smartphone. The Living Wine Labels App is free and available on the Google Play Store and Apple Store.
Then, scan the labels of the The Walking Dead Blood Red Blend and The Walking Dead Cabernet Sauvignon and join Rick Grimes of The Walking Dead on a dangerous supply run, or dodge the grasping hands of a zombie.
As the two bottles interact with each other, you can use both bottles to unlock the ultimate battle for survival: a showdown worthy of the apocalypse! An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions may have swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months, society has crumbled; there is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, and no cable TV. Luckily, there is wine! And, that’s why you should look for look for The Walking Dead wine bottles!
If you are having a wine gathering with friends who happen to be fans of the Walking Dead Comics, then: The Walking Dead Blood Red Blend, The Walking Dead Cabernet Sauvignon and Living Wine Labels Augmented Reality App can provide hours of exciting entertainment!
That’s not all!
The Living Wine Labels App is an authentic way to learn the stories behind your wine. And wine-time stories are the best. When friends and I gather together to share a bottle such as The Walking Dead Blood Red Blend or The Walking Dead Cabernet Sauvignon, we like to exchange stories, talk about new wine customs we have heard of, and eat foods like these Cheesy Walking Dead Finger Breadsticks served with Roasted Red Pepper Red Wine Dip.

- 1 cup warm water
- 3 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp Active Yeast
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ cup cheddar
- 1 egg for egg wash
- 3 red bell peppers
- 1 red onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- ⅓ cup The Walking Dead Blood Red Wine Blend
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
- 1 tsp parsley
- 1 tsp fresh ginger
- 1 tsp chili powder optional
Add the water, sugar and yeast to a bowl and mix well - set aside till mixture is frothy (about 5 minutes).
Then, add flour and salt together into a bowl and mix, add the yeast/water mixture and cheddar and knead till dough isn’t sticky.
Oil a bowl and set dough in it. Cover with a warm moist towel and set aside for 1 hour.
Dough will be double in size. At this point divide dough into 4 balls. Roll each ball out into a tube. Divide tube into four “fingers”. Shape into Walking Dead-type fingers. Brush with egg wash. Add a slivered almond for the nail.
Bake breadsticks in a oven that’s been preheated to 425 degrees F for approx. 15 minutes.
While dough is sitting covered, wash and roast the red peppers by preheating oven to 400 degrees and setting the red peppers to bake in it for 20 minutes. Then, flip peppers over and bake another 20 minutes. When done, cover with foil and set aside till cool.
While peppers are cooling, saute onion and garlic for about 15 minutes, stirring to keep them from burning.
Add the wine into another pan, turn stove onto medium high heat and let wine reduce down for about 8-10 minutes. The ⅓ cup of wine will reduce down to about 1-2 tbsps.
When peppers are cool, the stem and skin will separate from them easily. Add the flesh of the 3 bell peppers to a food processor or a bowl where you can easily use your immersion blender. Also add in the onions, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper, parsley, red wine reduction and chili powder and pulse till ingredients are roughly incorporated. Serve with the whole wheat breadsticks.
