The golf legend partners with Terlato Wines for a namesake line of Napa Valley wines
June 14, 2010
In May, professional golf legend Jack Nicklaus announced his collaboration with Terlato Wines International on a new line of handcrafted, limited-production wines. Appropriately, Jack Nicklaus Wines made its public debut earlier this month at the Jack Nicklaus-hosted PGA Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio. The two inaugural wines were the 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and 2007 Private Reserve---a blend of Bordeaux and Syrah which combines fruit from prestigious Napa Valley appellations.
Jack Nicklaus Wines came to fruition after Nicklaus, a long-time wine collector seeking to create a signature wine, visited Terlato-owned vineyards in California with his sons. They toured the Chimney Rock and Rutherford Hill wineries. A partnership was formed, and Nicklaus now has his name on a line of Napa Valley wines.
The 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, which features a complex structure, is priced at $35. The 2007 Private Reserve blend is priced at $43. Both wines are available through www.uncorked.com and at premier golf clubs and resorts throughout the United States.
