“And of the fruits of date palms and vines, from which you draw wine and goodly provision, there are indeed signs in that for a people who apply reason.” Sura An-Nahl 16:67

Although the early Mohammed was reportedly as much a friend of wine as most of his contempories in Mecca, he later turned his mind to other pleasures. The namesakes of our label, childhood buddies Hal Bagelstein and Al DeLepanto, highlighted the sad irony in Mohammed’s turn from vines to women. How peaceful the world could be today, if only Mohammed had kept with the vines.

Having left this world for their own patch of paradise long ago, Hal and Al now gaze down on us, wondering what is done to the Lucky Country they loved so much. We, who are left to dwell here for a little longer, value their free spirit and sharp sense of humour.

It is our firm commitment to serve you the best from the rich red soils of Australia, to do so in the right spirit and for the right reasons.

Our first offering in time for the 2014 Festive Season carries the label ‘72 Virgins’ and is a very drinkable sparkling wine sourced from the picturesque Barossa Valley, South Australia.

Q Society President Debbie Robinson on Today Tonight SA on 72 Virgins Sparkling Wine

Published on Dec 21, 2014 by Q Society of Australia Inc.
Hal & Al’s 72 Virgins Australian Sparkling Wine is a fundraiser Q Society started with a limited batch in the lead-up to Christmas and New Years. The box of 6 bottles sold for $72 plus freight.

The lot sold out within three weeks and it was well received by most Australians. Many have missed out and we’re thinking whether to run a second batch early 2015. There was also considerable interest from our friends in the USA, but US law and prohibitive transport cost prohibit selling outside Australia. Perhaps there will be an American wine wholesaler interested to come on board.

What a better way to finance the fight for Liberty and Western values?

PS: The online poll found that 96% of voters thought the 72 Virgins Sparkling Wine not offensive.
