FAT bastard, the well-loved, delicious, full-bodied range of wines, celebrated 21 years of Living large at a party to remember.
“Much like a glass of Fat bastard wine, life should be filled to the brim and enjoyed in large, delicious gulps.” This is the voice of Mr. b. He’s gold, he’s grand and he thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Large and Colourful with a delighted group of Fat bastard fans. Mr b. was everywhere, and the party overflowed with Fat bastard’s range of colourful wines enjoyed with an exquisitely presented six-course dinner, all set amidst a splendid floral blaze of colour.
You can’t miss the Fat bastard wines, all brightly adorned in LIVING large colours to match the respective varietals. Strikingly visible, they are also widely available, retailing nationally between R75 and R85 (white wines) and between R110 and R120 (red wines).
Fat bastard Range of Wines: The name might be fun, but the wine is serious. This high quality, fruit-driven, rich and round, food-friendly range of wines, with a delightful story behind its name, includes a Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Rosé, Merlot, Pinotage, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Golden Reserve Bordeaux-style red blend, and very soon, a Chenin Blanc.
WHY Fat bastard? When Thierry and Guy first created these delicious wines, they did it with gusto. They poured their hearts, souls and great dollops of generosity into every bottle. In fact, it was a great big discovery (in winemaking terms) that led to the name ‘Fat bastard.’ It comes from having left the wine on the lees for a lot longer than usual, which allowed it to develop more fully and completely. And when tasted, there was simply no other way to describe it other than: “Well, now that’s a Fat bastard!”
This tradition of creating full-bodied wines to be enjoyed with bellyfuls of laughs and good-natured cheer continues today 21 years later. Whether it’s a celebration, a kuier or a “come on over!”, there’s a Fat bastard (or two) waiting to be opened.
