The intriguing nose emits aromas of brambles, blackberries and vanilla.The velvety palate displays flavors of stone fruits, strawberries and spice.

“A Fistful of Mothballs” pays tribute to the infamous outlaw, Ben Kilpatrick, and the Hobo Sphinx moth. Kilpatrick was a member of the Wild Bunch gang and attempted to rob a train in 1912 but was captured and sentenced to prison. The Hobo Sphinx moth, featured on
the label, is active during the day when it nectars at flowers and can be spotted across British Columbia.
To celebrate our latest addition to the family, The Hatching Post Brewery, we’ve adorned some of our wine bottles with art from their “Call of the Wild Bunch” series, including our new label, “A Fistful of Mothballs.” This label honors the story of Ben Kilpatrick, an American outlaw and Wild Bunch member, who attempted to rob a train near Sanderson, Texas in 1912. The Sphinx moth, also known as the Hobo Moth, can be spotted across British Columbia, and is active during daylight hours when it occasionally nectars at flowers. We invite you to come raise a glass with us and pay homage to Kilpatrick’s legacy and the Wild Bunch’s notorious reputation with “A Fistful of Mothballs.”
