The FAB line of wines came about one blustery day when a man of superior taste walked into a liquor store and realized he couldn't find a brand of wine for under $10 that could guarantee him a quality wine across the map.
Sure, he knew his favorites, but the host of the party he was to attend wanted a specific wine, and he needed a name he could trust. How could he make a quick decision about which wine to bring to a party that would please everyone? He was lost.
And so the FAB line of wines was born. He first went to his favorite wine maker in upstate California to ask for a red and white blend that would please everyone, then to Chile to find something more exotic and light, to Argentina to gain a Malbec, and finally to Germany to bottle a classic Riesling.
These wines were bottled with similar labels, designed to say, "Hey, I'm Fab. I'm obtainable. I'm delicious. Try me out."
The FAB wine line is by no means complete, and it will continue to grow as quality wines at a good price are discovered across the globe.
