The Oddbins Take

Prometheus is not just the name of a disappointing prequel to Alien starring Michael Fassbender, he's also a significant figure in Greek mythology. Prometheus defied the gods and gave humanity the gift of fire, enabling progress and civilisation. For this, his punishment was to have his liver pecked out by an eagle for eternity. Some say that Hercules freed Prometheus, others say that Prometheus and the eagle became the best of friends and ended up solving wine related crime together.


After his release from eagle jail, Prometheus stole grape varieties from Bordeaux and gave them to the Californians. Matchbook winery honoured this gift from Prometheus by making an estate grown Bordeaux blend with scintillating flavours of blackberry, dark plum, fresh violets and vanilla, and naming it the Arsonist. What Prometheus robs next, only time will tell.
