About Fat bastard
Good friends Tierry (renowned French winemaker) and Guy (British wine industry rebel) created FAT bastard almost by accident. It started out as an experiment Thierry had going in the back of his cellar, leaving a barrel "on the lees" (yeast cells). He didn't know what to expect, but when he and Guy tried the wine, Thierry exclaimed, with a strong French accent, "Now zat iz what you call eh Phet bast-ard!" This very British expression perfectly described the wine's wonderful color and round, rich palate, so that's what they named it. In 1991, Véronique Torcolacci obtained her degree in oenology from the University of Toulouse. She joined Gabriel Meffre as oenologist in charge of quality before becoming head winemaker.

"In the year 2000 my staff and I worked under an officer affectionately called Fat Bastard. When I and three of my four managers resigned we celebrated with some bottles of Fat Bastard!"
