These bottles of wines have a short story attached

There's nothing better than coming home after a long day at work and curling up on the sofa with a glass of wine in your hand.

Scratch that – there is nothing better than coming home after a long day at work and snuggling up on the sofa with a glass of wine and getting stuck into a good book.

And now you can do exactly that, thanks to a handy new invention. Brand and product design agency Reverse Innovations has teamed up with Italian winery Matteo Correggia to create a collection of wines called Librottiglia.

They may look like your average bottles of wine but they have one additional feature - each label features a short story. This means you can read and sip your wine at the same time. How handy is that?

The characteristics of each wine are matched to the three short stories, which have been written by three different authors.

Patrizia Laquidara is the author of La Rana nella Pancia (which means The Frog in the Belly), while cultural producer Regina Nadaes Marques has penned Ti amo. Dimenticami (I love you. Forget me), and journalist and satirist Danilo Zanelli has produced L’omicidi, which in Italian stands for murder.

All in all, it seems like it’s the perfect product. However the only downside (as you can see with the titles) is that the stories are penned in Italian. So you’ll need to be fluent in the language to really enjoy the full experience.

Here’s hoping that an English version is available soon!
