Burger King is a fast food hamburger restaurant chain headquartered in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, FL. It has over 13,000 restaurants in 79 countries. It was founded in 1953 as Insta-Burger King. After enduring financial difficulties, two franchisees, David Edgerton and James McLamore, bought the company in 1954 and renamed it Burger King. The company then changed owners several times, and since 2010, 3G Capital of Brazil has held majority stake of the company. The restaurant primarily sells burgers, chicken sandwiches, french fries, and desserts. The Whopper is Burger King’s signature sandwich.

The wine is aged in flame-grilled wooden barrels, giving it a distinct charred flavour, which the company says, pairs it perfectly with the chain’s signature burger.
