These two blokes named FATS HOLLA and SKINNY GERVANTI worked in the vineyards. With weeding, vine training, pruning and picking, over the years they got to know those vines like friends and understood when a vine’s fruit was just right for picking.
We don’t know whether Fats or Skinny made this wine but enough to know that he couldn’t resist the delightful fruit flavours of the Viognier, Vermentino and the Chardonnay, so he put them together in this blend.
It’s the sort of wine Fats & Skinny would enjoy while sitting around on a hot Sunday afternoon with mates and their sheilas.

FAT’N SKINNY BY HASTWELL & LIGHTFOOT WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE LATE 1990’S IN RESPONSE TO DEMAND FOR A BLENDED WINE FROM McLAREN VALE IN THE UK.

WHEN WE BLEND WINES WE AIM TO MAKE IT DRINKABLE STRAIGHT AWAY AND INTO THE FUTURE.
