Best Cellars Spotlight: Folk & Fable Wines

Folk & Fable wines

Of all our Bright Cellars wines, there’s one that never fails to impress, time and time again. From its bold, classic packaging to its smooth finish, Folk & Fable wines are clearly a crowd favorite. 

This wine line houses a variety of rich reds including a red blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Zinfandel. Get to know our Best Cellar – the bold, smooth, and smoky Folk & Fable. 

Folk & Fable Wines 

We don’t believe greatness happens by chance. History teaches us that legends were forged in fire long ago. So we’ve borrowed a centuries old tradition from distilleries and crafted a unique tasting experience for wine drinkers. Smooth, smoky, and jammy, Folk & Fable will challenge your expectations of what a wine can be. Like all legends, this one has been years in the making.

Bourbon barrel aged to perfection

What makes Folk & Fable so special? The wine itself starts out exceptional, then undergoes a process that takes the flavor profile to the next level. All Folk & Fable wines are aged for three months in Bourbon barrels, giving each wine a warm, toasty finish. 

You might be asking yourself, “what’s the deal with oak aging?” According to our good friend science, oak aging actually does enhance the flavor of wine. 

Barrel aging adds aromatic flavor compounds to the wine, in this case manifesting itself in flavors of vanilla, spice, and smoke. 

When we say Folk & Fable wines are smooth sippers, we mean it. Aging wine in a barrel also allows for the slow ingress of oxygen that makes wine smoother and less astringent. 

It also helps that Bourbon barrels specifically are made from 100% new American oak and often charred, giving the wine a smoky flavor reminiscent of whatever was aging in the barrel previously. 

Pairing Folk & Fable wines

No matter which red wine strikes your fancy – the complex red blend, lush Cabernet Sauvignon or spicy Zinfandel – our Folk & Fable wines pair exceptionally with all things smoky. Think juicy steak, BBQ chicken, or grilled veggies. 

How does Bright Cellars wine subscription work?

Bright Cellars is a monthly wine subscription designed to deliver you more of what you love. You start by taking a quick, 7-question quiz, then get matched with wine based on your results. 

As you sip, rate, and review your matches, they become increasingly more accurate. Plus, you get to try wines from all over the world and learn more about your preferences and palate as you go. 

Curious? Take the quiz for yourself, and get a better feel for your wine preferences.

If you don’t match with our beloved Folk & Fable, you can also request a bottle in your box by getting in contact with your Wine Concierge. 

If you’ve fallen in love with Folk & Fable (just as we have), your Wine Concierge can also help you order half and full cases of wine in addition to your monthly wine subscription.

  1. I’ve tried the Cab and I’ve got the red blend on my rack. I’d love to try the Zinfandel to make the hat trick!

  2. Hmmm, while I thought the Folk & Fable Red Blend was delicious on the nose, unfortunately I wasn’t in love with the taste. After reading they also have a Cab and a Zin, I’m curious to try F&F again. I typically prefer drinking those two varietals over a blend, anyway :)
