- A festive season promotion featuring a wine range with a quirky name and a reputation that stretches across three continents. The first Fat Bastard wine originated as an experimental chardonnay and was produced by two friends, UK Guy Anderson and French winemaker Thierry Boudinaud. Delighted with their creation - which had been left on the lees for far longer than normal – and that they had produced a big, fat, full-bodied wine, which led one of them to exclaim “Well now that’s a fat bastard.” The name stuck, and they went on to make a whole range of rich, round, food-friendly wines that have found favour on both sides of the Atlantic.
Back in SA they are produced by Robertson Winery, and the range offers a sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot noir rose, merlot, pinotage, shiraz and cabernet. Whites cost around R70, reds sell at R110 and all are widely available.
