Lex Gabrielle 9 Nov 2020

If there's one thing we all know to be true about 2020, it's that it's literally been a dumpster fire of bad news after bad news. From losing iconic celebrities like Kobe Bryant and Alex Trebek to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we've all been bracing for what is going to happen next.

During this rough year, one thing that we've all done is drink. A lot.

Luckily, one winery has found the perfect way to "cheers" for the year 2020 coming to an end.

Grovedale Winery, located in Pennsylvania, is well known for several of their delicious and lovely wines. This year, they've released a brand new oak barrel-aged blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot — perfect for 2020.

The name of the wine? Sh!tshow.

You've read that correctly. The winery has decided that the only way to sum up 2020 perfectly is to call it like they see it, an absolute Sh!tshow.

The name came to them as a joke originally, but, it stuck.

"When we floated the idea to people, they immediately started laughing. We lift a glass together to celebrate life's good moments, and we thought having a wine for the 'sh!tshow' moments of life would help bring a smile. At the time, we were thinking of situations like your friend goes through a divorce, or when your project at work fails. There's no way we could have predicted how crazy 2020 would become, but it does seem like it's the perfect gift to capture the times. That's why we made our tagline 'A fine wine for the times,'" the winery owner said.
