The label and wine will be unveiled at a private tasting on January 5th at RN74 in San Francisco.
“It’s an exciting honor to make this special commemorative wine celebrating Super Bowl 50″. Ted Edwards, Winemaker. “As a Napa Valley winery dating back to 1886, we understand the significance of memorializing such historic milestones. This special bottling was selected from our top lots of the vintage, revealing the classic bold and rich expression that make Napa one of the best places in the world to grow Bordeaux varieties. This wine will delight all fans celebrating this monumental game. ”
“We are very pleased to have this opportunity to work with the League to commemorate this historic event”. Diane Karle, CEO and Founder, Wine by Design. “Super Bowl 50 marks not only a significant milestone for the NFL but a place in history for the Bay Area. It was important for us to identify a wine worthy of both the collector and the wine enthusiast. Our goal is to continue to elevate the wine experience for sports fans and introduce amazing wines that are not traditionally found outside winery tasting rooms. We believe Freemark Abbey and this one-of-a-kind limited production Super Bowl Fiftieth Reserve accomplishes that.”
