It's a big f#$%ing red wine!

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

The BFR is a limited release, one of a kind wine like no other. This wine will vary from year to year as we only put in the best, whether it be a blend of 20 varieties or an outstanding year of one particular variety, you know you’re getting the best the vintage had to offer. 2016 produced a blend of Touriga, Lagrein and Cabernet Sauvignon. With only a few thousand bottles produced annually, you’ll want to get in on this one quick. While its name has different meanings depending on who you ask, those on the inside know the truth. Bob Franchitto’s Red, Big Friendly Red and Bob’s Favourite Red are all friendly adaptations but once you’ve tried it you know that is a... BIG F@#%ING RED!
