The NFL and … wine? Now, combine your love of both the National Football League and California wines. NFL Alumni recently announced it’s partnering with Vermeil Wines to create a new Napa Valley red wine blend called Legendary. Sales from the wine will be designated to retired player programs.

 

Former NFL coach Dick Vermeil founded Vermeil Wines in 1999 with one Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery now creates 11 single-vineyard wines in collaboration with world-renowned winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown.

 

The Legendary wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel. The fruit is sourced from Frediani Vineyards, one of the oldest vines in Calistoga.

 

“I’ve been sharing wine with NFL players ever since I came into the league in 1969, and to now have the opportunity to continue sharing my own Vermeil Wines with fellow alums is a real honor,” said Vermeil.

 

“Partnering with Vermeil Wines was a unique opportunity we couldn’t pass up,” added Elvis Gooden, CEO, National Football League Alumni. “Supporting a member’s product and having proceeds from the sale of that product channeled back into programs aimed at helping the membership is a tremendous win-win.”

 

Legendary is available now and is $52 per bottle.
