Wine and Unusual Animal Mating Rituals
Australia's Black Swan Vineyards has partnered with the Los Angeles Zoo to donate two Australian black swans and fund the creation of the Zoo's first-ever black swan habitat, marking the first time in the Zoo's 39-year history that black swans will reside at the Zoo. The black swans, who mate for life, will officially arrive just in time for Valentine's Day 2005. Among the activities being planned are a discussion and slide presentation by L.A. Zoo General Curator Mike Dee, who will examine romantic and unusual animal mating rituals. The event will also feature the opportunity to name the Zoo's two new Australian black swans with an auction benefiting GLAZA's animal "adoption" program. GLAZA is the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association. MORE->

Can’t say that I’ve tasted, or even seen these wines in any shops. But the web site is certainly one up on a lot of wine sites I’ve seen recently.
