Say “Hello” to Hello Kitty’s Own Variety of Sweet Bottled Wines

The iconic Hello Kitty has been featured on all sorts of products since she was first illustrated by Yuko Shimizu in 1975. Now, you can say “hello” to one more iteration of the adorable character—she’s got her own wines. Sanrio, the company home to Hello Kitty, has partnered with Italy’s Torti Winery to produce varieties that capture the essence of this famous little girl.

Unsurprisingly, Hello Kitty graces the label of light and/or sweet wines like rosé and sparkling. Each bottle showcases a different attitude of Kitty, making them something collectible for fans—the Sweet Pink flavor even has a heart blown into the bottle neck.

Those itching to try these special beverages can find them by the glass at Antonello Ristorante in Santa Ana, California. But if that trek is too far, all the wines are available for purchase on Great Wine Direct.
