Agent Red and The Wine Spies


Alan Kropf and Agent Red

This is the closest anyone has come to publicly posting a picture of Agent Red of The Wine Spies on the Internet. I’m pretty sure that device in his hand is some sort of spy camera. Agent Red is one of several special agents working behind the scenes at thewinespies.com, with others including Agent White, Agent Sparkle, and Agent Green (I’ve even heard rumors of an Agent Grenache).

The Wine Spies features only one wine a day, so you don’t have to worry about them trying to up-sell you to something more expensive, because there is only one wine to choose from. The whole site is very approachable and understandable, set to a cool spy theme.

Wines typically come in at around 20 bucks and are hand selected by The Wine Spies themselves. Plus, as part of a not so covert operations, The Wine Spies are sticking issues of Mutineer Magazine in every box of wine that goes out, so these people clearly know what’s going on. Check them out and let us know what you think.

    A good agent never blows his cover…

    Agent Red is actually about 6’2″, I’m just standing on a milk crate to better mask his identity…
