An image of Marilyn Monroe that graces the label. The photo of Marilyn in a daringly low-cut dress was taken in 1958, and the dress is believed to be the one she wore at the debut announcement of Some Like It Hot.
This is a highly desired Marilyn Merlot Wines Collectible. This SPECIAL large oversize bottle of the 2006 vintage 3.0L Marilyn Merlot was bottled and hand produced in 2008. I could not find the exact number of bottles that were actually made but according to the manufacturer and producer of Marilyn Wines, each etched bottle is created with a unique design around the label in both the 1.5 Liter and 3 Liter sizes. They made a very limited number of each etched bottle, usually limited to around 6 to 36 bottles of the 1.5 Liters, and only 2 to 10 bottles of the 3 Liter size. Very Rare!
Since the estimated number of bottles manufactured by Marilyn Wines is only a maximum of 10 bottlers, it is without question that this is one of the rarest you can get. Since it would have been very expensive to have a 3.0 Liter label printed for less than a production of less than 10 bottles of this special edition, Marilyn Wines blacked out the 1.5 liter mark on the reverse side of the label to use for their 3.0 Liter label. There are not any labeled bottles known of the 2008 Marilyn Merlot special edition bottles existing to show or indicate that they are 3.0 Liters.
All the bottles are done by hand from start to finish. Their design is created and then made into a film in a darkroom (similar to creating a photo negative). Once the film has been created, the bottles are then masked off and the film is applied. The bottles are then placed into a sand carving (sandblasting) cabinet while their artist utilizes various instruments to hand carve out the design image on each of the bottles. Once the carving is complete, the bottles are thoroughly wiped down and the actual paper label is then applied to the bottles.The next step is the hand painting of the design. Sometimes they use paint or glitter paint.
Each bottle is hand etched and hand painted, resulting in a truly unique work of art. Each bottle was carefully masked, hand etched and hand painted, resulting in a truly unique work of art.
