Foot fetish ‘icon’ releases wine crushed by own feet

A foot fetish influencer who makes £10k per month posting content of her feet has launched a limited-edition Cabernet Sauvignon made using grapes crushed by her own toes.

Simp Wine by Renegade Urban Winery

An Only Fans content creator has ‘stepped up’ her commercial endeavours by releasing a wine to market that has been in direct contact with her feet, something that her 320,000 followers will be all too happy to snap up.

Emilie Rae from Horsham, West Sussex, joined the adults-only platform in 2018 and regularly posts imagery and videos of her feet, charging £40 per minute.

According to Rae, she is bombarded with requests to post content of her standing in “mushy foods” such as baked beans, a trend which led her to investigate the art of grape treading.

Simp Wine was produced in collaboration with Renegade Urban Winery in Walthamstow, East London, using grapes sourced from both Spain and Lebanon. Renegade’s wines are stocked in London on-trade venues including Fallow, SomSaa, Kricket and Apricity, though this latest endeavour will be available only via


The Cabernet Sauvignon, described as full-bodied, with notes of black cherry, blackcurrant and “perfect feet”, is priced at £100 per bottle.

At the same price point (around £100), Berry Bros & Rudd offers Bordeaux’s Château Calon-Ségur 2006, English winery Gusbourne’s Brut Reserve 2013, and California’s Littorai, Wendling Vineyard, Block E Pinot Noir 2019.

Embrace the fetish

Through Simp Wine, Rae claims she wants to “embrace the fetish” and bring to life a new genre of fandom, dubbed ‘Artisanal Simpism’.

“One little bit of my foot is in every bottle – and I think that’s what foot fans will love,” Rae said.

“The foot fetish is the most popular fetish in the UK and this is the perfect product for my fans, who are a huge reason for my success. I hope that we can normalise fetishes rather than stereotyping peoples’ preferences and that my fans will feel even closer to my feet through Simp Wine.”

During the process of trampling the grapes, Rae said, “I nearly lost my life.”

“Obviously, when the skins of the grapes break, they become really slippery…I was stomping away, trying to look sexy… and the next minute I’m flying off to the side.”

Rae has adopted an interesting marketing strategy, choosing a wine name that insults its drinkers.

According to Urban Dictionary, the definition of ‘simp’ is “someone who does way too much for a person they like” or “a guy that is overly desperate for women”.

The foot influencer said: “It’s an enjoyable wine that a lot of love has gone into… grab a bottle, have a sip, unwind, and savour the flavour.”

Speaking to the drinks business, Renegade Urban Winery founder Warwick Smith said: “It was great working with Emilie – she was very professional and a pleasure to work with. Our role in this was to ensure that a high quality wine was made and that it was done professionally. Our aim as a winery is to make innovative, interesting wines, and we are happy to do things differently. We want to make wine inclusive.”
