ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Famille Guibert Blame the Monkey Rouge

Famille Guibert Blame the Monkey Rouge is a peppery and jammy red blend of Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackberry and cherry jam, white and black pepper, and earthy tannins. A pleasant red to share with friends over dinner or sitting in the backyard at night. The phrase “Blame the Monkey” or “The Monkey Made Me Do It” is often used humorously to suggest that someone is blaming their misbehavior or mistakes on external circumstances or influences, rather than taking responsibility for their actions. Clearly, the monkey on the label made this gentleman believe it is raining, while it is not, seeing multiples of himself, and holding his drink while getting him to the next watering hole. The monkey made me do it, it’s really not my fault!
