Arrogant Frog and Le Freak are featured in my book 'Marilyn Merlot and the Naked Grape'.

While Arrogant Frog is indeed named by the French winery owner, the 'humble winemaker' as he describes himself on the back label, Le Freak and many other French wines with amusing names are labelled by, and with names, chosen by shippers in other countries.
