(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Screen legend and notorious blond bombshell Mamie Van Doren, will team with Wine Country Cellars and the L.A. Press Club to launch the first limited edition of collectible Mamietage® wine bottles at a VIP/press reception Wednesday, November 14th, 2007 in the City of West Hollywood.
Mamie is releasing a new series of wine with labels on 1.5 liter bottles featuring three images of Mamie. Two of the images are of Mamie today, and the third image is from Mamie at age 21. The wine labels are unique in that they all feature nude poses of Mamie covered up by a top, clear "peel away" label that has stars strategically placed. Peel the label away, and there is Mamie nude. The peel away portion is attached, and can be replaced to it's original form. The wine is called Mamietage®, a Bordeaux blend from Sonoma County's Armida Winery, chosen by Mamie herself, with a limited production of only 2000 bottles of each image. Each of the 2000 bottles will be individually numbered.
Media is invited to cover this red carpet event and join Mamie and her invited guests including: George Barris, Lorielle New (Grindhouse), Tab Hunter, Perez Hilton, Julie Newmar, Pamela Anderson, ( see Mamie & Pam's photo shoot on web site), James Bacon, Corbin Bernsen, Lou & Carla Ferrigno, Renee Taylor & Joe Bologna, Veruschka, Julie Strain, Kevin Thomas, Janet Charlton, Mr. Blackwell, Mayor and Council of West Hollywood, Gabriel Bologna, Gioia Bruno (of Expose'), John Paul DeJoria, Holly, Bridget and Kendra, E.G Daily (Devil's Rejects & Rugrats, Francesca Hilton, Rena Riffel (Showgirls), Shirley Jones, Marty Ingels, Barbara Lazaroff, Skip E.

"The delicious Bordeaux blend of Cabernet sauvignon, petite verdot, syrah and malbec was made and bottled by Armida Winery. This is a beautiful, rich wine with flavors of black cherry, vanilla, and a touch of chocolate. The light tannins and medium body give way to a long, fruit filled finish." Sx Magazine Australia
Mamie Van Doren's early roles as a free-spirited teenager and, later, as a woman of the world, signaled the advent of the sexual revolution. The only surviving member of the trio of blond Bombshells known in the 50's as "The Three M's — Mamie, Monroe and Mansfield" — Mamie Van Doren carved a special niche for herself in cinema history, one which was very different from her peers. Though Mamie embodies Hollywood's Golden Age of the 50's, she refuses to live in the past, to which these images will clearly testify!
The L.A. Press Club, www.lapressclub.org the oldest and most prestigious media membership organization in Southern California, once before recognized Mamie Van Doren as their Miss Eightball in 1950. " I am so pleased to have the LA press Club recognize me once again with my new wine venture. It seems like yesterday when I wore their Miss Eightball crown when my studio career launched in the fabulous 50's", states Mamie.
Armida Winery produced and bottled Mamietage® wine, and Armida wines and refreshments will be featured at the November 14th event. Mamietage® is distributed exclusively by Armida Winery and Wine Country Cellars.
A percentage of proceeds from the sale of the Mamitage collection will benefit Mamie's favorite charity, the Aids Healthcare Foundation. For more information and images regarding the wine and Mamie Van Doren, please visit the web site at www.mamiewine.com
