Martha Stewart SUED By Vampire Vineyards Wine?!

The super elegant and not tacky at all wine company Vampire Vineyards has filed a lawsuit against Martha Stewart and her company, Omnimedia, because they claim that she has been behind a "malicious" smear campaign!

The lawsuit claims that Martha - who makes Gallo wine - is jealous of her competitor's sales, and has created and sold knock-off bottles with Vampire Vineyard labels to "to disparage and tarnish [Vampire's] wine brands by portraying a mock label of Vampire Vineyards affixed to cheap, non-descript wine and spirits products."

LOLs! Seriously??

We have a hard time believing that Martha Stewart would single out any other wine company - let alone one that is tacky enough to cash in on the vampire craze to move their product - and attempt to ruin their street cred!

She's a scary bitch, but wouldn't she go after a label a little clASSier?!

What do U think?? Is Martha misbehaving again??

    Wow, ole Martha's pretty slick to be doing something that involved…sounds almost like a busted CIA scheme!



  2. 2

    actually, there was a "Vampire Wine" around way before the current vampire fad, whether this is the same company, I can't say…but Vampire Wine tasted like ass when I tried it.

    Um, Perez, Vampire wine has been around FAR longer than the recent vamp craze. It is really good wine, not spectacular or expensive, but it tastes great. I consider myself a pretty good judge of wine having done quite a bit of wine tasting in my time. Love Martha and love Vampire wine! I'm torn.

    IMO….
    When there's money to be had, there's nothing I wouldn't put past her.

    Wow great outlet for free publicity, Vampire Vinyards must be desperate. The "labels" she makes are for halloween party decoration for the consumer to put on their OWN choice of beverage, and are sold in numerous stores around this time. I agree it must taste like ass for them to be grabbing at this desperate ploy to get their product name out.

    As a manager of a wine shoppe, I can say that Vampire makes a great Pinot Noir and Syrah! The wine came before the vamp fad. Although, good for them for anticipating the fad would be back! Tons of Twilight/True Blood fanatics are popping corks of this delicious vino and drooling over the sexy, dead bodies! Time for you to try it Perez.

    Yea, seriously. Where have you been? Vampire Wine has been around a long time and is really good wine. Last I checked Gallo wine was a step away from Franzia in a box. Don't be so quick to jump on Martha Stewart's band of sheep.

    Vampire wine is not bad. I got a bottle as a gift around 8 or 9 years ago. I have bought it a few times since then. Martha…once a criminal, always a criminal.

    Check your facts. Vampire wines were out LONG before the stupid Twilight craze. They just "upped" their game to take advantage of the insanity that is Twilight. Or when True Blood was just a book series and not on HBO. I found my first bottle of Vampire wine probably 6 years ago. Yes, their website is cheesy selling fangs and junk. The wine is not exceptional, its ok.

    Martha 'makes' Gallo wine? Really?



  11. 11

    I wouldn't put anything past martha, especialy in business…..she is vicious. BUt this does sound a little fishy.



  12. 12

    HEY DON'T FUCK WITH MARTHA. SHE SPENT TIME IN THE BIG HOUSE.



  13. 13

    Wait, classier??? She makes GALLO WINE and sells her crap at K*Mart.

    Copyright and Trade Dress issues have a way of sorting themselves out, thankfully with the help of skilled lawyers.

    As has become your trademark of late you have only half of the information correct regarding Martha and Gallo Wines. Gallo Wines are made by E&J Gallo.
    The company is owned by the Gallo family and they have been making wines under that brand name for far longer the Vampire Wines has existed or you have been alive.
    Martha Stewart has lent her names to various varieties of wines from their vineyards since 2007. The suit was filed against her for attempting to disparage the Vampire Wines name while enhancing sales of the wines she is connected to , not against E&J Gallo.
    It has become painfully obvious that you don't do any research before posting crap on your blog. You simply find a headline, make some gross, nasty comment about it and post it to the web.
    Great work,Mario!

    Martha's not worth what she is by accident or luck, but who knows on this one.

    This is nothing more than a nuisance lawsuite looking to profit from abusing the legal system.
