Sporting Wine Club recently visited Wembley Stadium, home of football and NFL in the UK to showcase their wines.
What a treat to spend time tasting some NFL wines with Doug Tetley, MD of Delaware North, who manage all the stadium facilities there and at other iconic venues in the UK and beyond.
Drew Bledsoe, New England Patriots quarterback legend, has made a beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon from his Doubleback vineyard. It was served last year when the Jacksonville Jaguars were in town, and we are now adding two superlative wines from his farm deep in the Walla Walla Valley, Washington State.
The Patriotically named Elizabeth Chardonnay is the freshest, crispest vintage imaginable and the Flying B Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful companion to the world class Doubleback.
What a thrill – The Seattle Seahawks (just around the corner from Doubleback) are playing the Oakland Raiders at Wembley this Sunday, accompanied by Sporting Wine coupled with the name of Drew Bledsoe.
May the best team win and of course more matches to come. Cannot wait!
