Burger King launches Whopper Wine for those who like their grapes flame-grilled
30 Sep 2015
Not content with freaking us all out with black burger buns for Halloween, Burger King has now launched Whopper Wine – with the strapline: ‘fire is what we do best’.
Which doesn’t really make any sense, but then none of this really makes sense.
The red wine has been launched in Spain to celebrate 40 years of serving burgers to the country’s senors and senoritas.
It has apparently been aged in flame-grilled wooden barrels, giving it a distinct charred flavour, and pairs perfectly with the chain’s signature burger.
The limited edition wine is actually a nod to the burger giant’s Spanish heritage. When they opened their first location in the country in 1975, they added wine to the menu to tempt the locals.
Sadly, Whopper Wine is only currently available in Spain, with limited bottles being given out to fans via a Facebook competition.
However, we think they should think about a global launch.
After all, it’s probably only a matter of time before Maccy’s get in on the act. A glass of McMerlot anyone?
