‘Fifty Shades’ gives winery a boost

Fifty Shades of Grey, which has sold 65 million copies worldwide, is having a surprising impact in the wine world.

In South Africa, owners of the Constantia vineyard, said that interest in their honey-coloured dessert wine had soared since it featured in the second volume of the erotic trilogy.”We’re asked every day by people coming into our tasting rooms about the wine appearing in Fifty Shades Darker,” Hans Astrom, managing director of the estate, said. “We were somewhat surprised to discover that Vin de Constance was featured in the book.”
