Rocking Back-To-Back Double Gold medals

#LoveLARGE this Valentine’s Day and enjoy FAT bastard Rosé with audaciously delicious Vanilla French Toast!

FAT bastard wines are ‘tickled pink’ that their well-loved FAT bastard Rosé was honoured with a Double Gold medal, for the second year in a row, at the 2020 Rosé Rocks competition. Rosé Rocks is South Africa’s first dedicated rosé wine competition which seeks to recognise excellence in rosé winemaking and promote the SA Rosé category.

When you log on to the Black Elephant Vintners (BEV) website, one of the first things you see on the landing page is a line that reads "A Robben Island native, an ex-stockbroker and an elephant walk into a bar ..." And you know immediately this is not your run-of-the-mill wine estate operating from a 17th century Cape Dutch-styled farm. Indeed, the three blokes behind BEV - Kevin Swart (the Black), Raymond Ndlovu (the Elephant) and Jacques Wentzel (the Vintner) describe themselves as "Rebels of the vine whose mission it is to bring truth to the wine industry and create experiences that turn convention on its head."
