    Love the name, Susan:-) Chiean wines are sometimes fantastic. Have to try this one.

    • I do too Catarina, The fun part is that it really does convey fun and a more down to earth attitude about wine. It also helps that it tastes good too. 🙂

  • Cheryl Therrien

    Like Catarina I like the name. I thought the label would be more fitting to the name. Oh well… Glad it is a good one!

    • The name is very cool Cheryl. It does what it’s meant to do, attract attention… LOL. 🙂

  • Petra

    Hello I can’t believe it I had some years ago in Florida and it was the 2006 year, that was delicious but impossible to find in the UK! 🙂

    • Hi Petra and welcome, It is a great wine and more available ion the west coast in the states. So when you back in the US, stock up on this delight. 🙂

  • When I read the title of this post I thought it had something to do with smoking loonys…………..you crazy people who smoke things that make the loony but no I was wrong it is about a wine should have known better but alas I didn’t can’t change it now……………oh well I guess the name will get some people to drink it you know the crazy people who like to smoke funny stuff………..ok maybe not them but cool people like yourself, you know someone who is sane and doesn’t smoke the funny stuff………..I think I will leave now because well this comment isn’t making any sense you would think I was smoking the funny stuff………………lol

    • LOL… Jo-Anne, I love your thoughts. I thought the same at first until I read about where the name and concept of the wine came from. 🙂

    I’m generally not that fond of Pinot Noir as I prefer a heavier red, but based on your recommendation, I’ll try and seek it out. Thx as always for sharing.

    • I think you would enjoy it Doreen, What I have learned is not all Pinot Noir are the same… duh! When you visit, we will have to give some a try. 🙂

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    I’m always looking for a good Pinot. This weekend I tried Primarius Pinot for the first time in a long time, and now I don’t know why I’ve taken such a long break from Pinot!

    • Than is a very nice wIne Jeri. As you know, I too and a big Pinot Noir fan. I do get that, I sometimes go off on a tangent only to come back to my favorites. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    The story of where the name comes from is great. There are several different plays on words there. Loon can refer to the water fowl or to crazy. So there may be an inside joke in there as well.

    • There is one Jon, But I could find the full details on the whole story. I guess his father was a real character. I thought it would make a great post at a later time when I review another of this label. 🙂

  • Debra Yearwood

    What a great name for a wine. I’m never sure with pinot noirs and like to have a recommendation before trying, so thank you for that. If it taste as good as it’s name, it should be a treat. 🙂

    • I thought so too Debra. It makes me smile overtime I see a bottle. It just a really fun wine to have and it certainly makes for a great conversation piece. 🙂

  • I like their description regarding those with a sense of adventure. Sounds like a wine to try.

    • It is a fun description Susan. I think that is a good part of the reason I gave this wine a try. I am glad I did. 🙂

  • Jacqueline Gum

    I actually drink this wine! I can’t believe that you wrote about a wine that I am familiar with. I tried it a few years back in FL. I was strolling through Costco, of all places, and a wine distributor offered to help me. He made the recommendation and I loved it!

    • How cool is that Jacqueline… :-). It is a fun wine that offers up great flavors. I love the story behind it. It makes for a great conversation ice breaker when I serve it with friends. 🙂
