Clear the runway for FlyWine. I've seen versions of single-serving wines before—products like StackTek and Zipz—which remind me more of Jell-O cups than something I want to drink from. FlyWine is an adorable screw-capped miniature wine bottle, promoted as a way to get wine into your carry-on.

I haven't been a fan of April Fool's Day since that time my mom told me I had a spider on my shirt. I'm not a prankster, I don't like feeling gullible (who does?), and I typically approach the day with plenty of caution and eye rolls.
But I've softened to April Fool's recently, as it seems to have turned into a day celebrating creative writing and fun marketing. This year, I was prepared to not fall for any tricks, and here are some of my favorite of this year's wine-related April Fool's pranks.

Looking back now, there were early signs that working for Wine Spectator would be a good job for me. I remember sitting in the junior high–school cafeteria and describing to my friends, in great detail, an amazing meal I had eaten. I was met with deadpan stares. "It was a burger," they reminded me flatly.

I recently met winemaker Jen Beloz of The Prisoner Wine Company. You've probably heard of the wine, a widely distributed California Zinfandel–based blend with a Francisco Goya etching on the label. It has a huge following.
Thoughtful and energetic, Beloz originally planned to be a marine biologist, but was thrown off course when she first walked into a winery. "The smell of the barrel room got into my soul," she explained. I can relate.
