Just call it fifty shades of—vino!

E.L. James, author of the bestselling romance novel— and soon-to-be big screen adaptation—adds wine-maker to her resume with the launch of Fifty Shades of Grey Red Satin and White Silk wines, a collection of wines inspired by her saucy trilogy.

Featuring the tagline “You Are Mine,” the wines were developed and personally blended by James and winemakers in California’s North Coast region, and offers consumers the chance to connect with Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele on a different level.

“Wine plays an important role in Fifty Shades of Grey, adding to the sensuality that pervades a number of scenes,” James says. “I hope my readers curl up with a glass as they enjoy the romance between Anastasia and Christian.”

Johnston painted the mural in 1993 on the exterior wall of what was then a record store. The image was printed on a T-shirt, which Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain once wore.
