Gobsmacked 2022 Flipping the Bird Rose
the hatch wines
Flipping The Bird rosé is like a summer fling that you can't resist. Its nose is a fruity medley of watermelon, grapefruit, and guava, making you feel like you're lounging on a tropical island. On the palate, you'll taste the juicy goodness of raspberries and a tropical punch that will make you want to flip the bird to anything that comes between you and your glass. It's a wine that's both refreshing and rebellious. Cheers to flipping convention on its head!
the story (In Jason’s own words)
A few years back my parents founded Parrot Island, a non-profit sanctuary for abandoned and abused exotic birds in Peachland BC. My father saw a growing need for a facility to house the birds that are later abandoned by their owners due to the problems that can arise when a child is given a parrot as a gift. Parrots are intelligent animals with long lifespans, and over time can develop antisocial behaviour when their owners “move on” to other things. With a waiting list of over 100 birds, the need for donations never wanes. That’s where this bottle of wine comes in. 100 percent of the profits from the sale of this bottle will be donated to Parrot Island. I hope that this will not only help raise the money needed to continue operating the facility but will also help to raise awareness.
