Back Story & Wine Information

The brain child of Guy Anderson and Thierry Boudinaud, Fat Bastard, was established in 1995 with wine made by Thierry in the Languedoc region of France. Guy and Thierry created Fat Bastard almost by accident. It started out as an experiement Thierry had been doing in the back of his cellar, leaving a barrel ‘on the lees’ (yeast cells). He didn’t know what to expect, but when his friends tried the wine, Thierry exclaimed “Now zat iz what you call eh Phet bast-ard!” This very English expression perfectly described the wine’s wonderful colour and round, rich palate, so that’s the story behind the name. Since 1995, Guy and Thierry have been careful to maintain the quality of the wine and have now reached a plateau in the premium grapes available in the South of France, hence the birth of a South African Fat Bastard range.
