William Shakespeare: Measure for Measure

In contrary to the premium ‘Sack’ wine, ‘Bastard’ wine is referred a lesser quality sweet wine, typically from Spain. Spanish wine export taxes were abolished in 1491, English merchants were given preferential treatment in 1517 and distinction was upheld between second-rate wines, so-called Bastards. In essence, any sweetened wine, but more correctly applied to a sweet Spanish wine (white or brown) made of the Bastard Muscadine Grape.
