Winemaker's Notes

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 more than $1 Million for charity.

The grapes for this wine come from the Rheinhessen region of Germany. The blend is Riesling and Pinot Blanc.

This blend presents elegant aromas of flowers and a hint of tropical fruit. In the mouth, the flavors are ripe and fresh with hints of pach, pear and a touch of citrus. The finish balances nicely with sweet fruit and racy acidity.
