I’ve enjoyed vintage wines as well as the cheapest wine my dollars can buy. I’m not picky when it comes to this drink. Maybe I’m not sophisticated enough or maybe my palate is not developed, but I’m pretty easy to please. I enjoy my glass of wine at night at least a few times a week, so I don’t like to spend a fortune on a single bottle. I love that First-Rate Old Fart wine is under $10 for the bottle. The wine is a blend of Merlot and Raboso grape varietals.
But the clever name is what sells it for me. Many people choose wine based on the label and funny names are where it’s at. It’s by Selective Wine Estates, the makers of Mommy’s Time Out and Dads Day Off Wines.
Everyone has a favorite First-Rate Old Fart in his or her life. This red wine comes from Italy and has nice acidity, good balance, and mouth-watering fruit flavors. It is a great wine with food or just as an aperitif and it makes the perfect gift for the First-Rate Old Fart in your life.
We went to visit my parents last month, so I decided to gift my bottle to my favorite old fart – my dad. He loved the gift, and got a big kick out of the name, too. This makes a funny gag gift but it’s not just a gag, it’s a wine they’ll enjoy with a side of laughter.
