It’s a Freakshow All Right

Michael David Winery has launched an interactive face filter app called Freakshow Maskerade, which allows users to become their favorite characters from the Freakshow wine brand and enter to win their way onto the wine label.


The Freakshow Maskerade app features six face-changing characters, with three additional characters ready to be unlocked by scanning Freakshow wine bottles at retail.

The winery also markets the Petite Petit and Earthquake wines, and the latest to the Freakshow lineup, Freakshow Zin.
