London, Jan 20: Fans of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' now want to experience first hand some of the erotic novel's contents - including South Africa's Constantia desert wine, which is on the menu at a fictitious masked ball.
For two centuries, it provided sweet comfort to some of the best known characters in history and literature, from Napoleon and Louis XVI to Frederick the Great and Charles Dickens' Reverend Septimus Crisparkle.
Even the French poet Baudelaire was moved to claim that only the lips of his lover surpassed the heavenly sweetness of South Africa's honey-coloured Constantia wine.
Now, exactly 200 years after. »
