The Big Tattoo project began in 2002 with the release of the debut product, Big Tattoo Red. With great success, Big Tattoo Red raised over $300,000 for charity during its first two years. Big Tattoo White debuted in 2005 with the 2003 vintage.
This wine comes from two brothers, Alex, a wine importer, and Erik, a tattoo artist. Together they created Big Tattoo White, in honor of their mother, Liliana, who passed away from cancer in 2000. Alex created the blend and Erik designed the label using Liliana's favorite symbol, the Fleur de Lys. For every bottle sold, the brothers donate 50 cents to Capital Hospice and other breast cancer related charities in the name of Liliana S. Bartholomaus. To date, Big Tattoo Wines has raised over $850,000 for charity.
