Red Sox Wine Not All Red: Three Player Labels Raise Funds for Charity


There are some wines that smell as if they have been strained through an old sock, then there are wines that proudly proclaim their association with Red Sox.

A trio of new wines are being released in New England that are linked to three Boston Red Sox stars and are designed to raise funds for charity. Manny Ramirez (Manny Being Merlot), Curt Schilling (Schilling Schardonnay) and Tim Wakefield (CaberKnuckle Cabernet Sauvignon) are being marketed by Charity Wines under the Longball Vineyards label.

The Chilean wines are priced at between $11-$13 a bottle, with $1.25 per bottle going to a charity selected by each player: Wakefield, Pitching for Kids, a New England children's sports group; Ramirez, CHARLEE, a Miami group that provides support services to abused children; and Schilling, Curt's Pitch for ALS, which helps patients with Lou Gehrig's disease.

Hannaford supermarkets will have these wines. I don't know about other chains or even other Hannafords, but the York Maine Hannaford ordered over 100 cases. (I have a friend who works there.)

Does the flavor start off strong and then slowly die away?
Must consume by end of the season or the flavor will be gone.

Hi there,

A while back I started brewing my own wine, I have really started getting into it and now actually sell my wine to friends and family. I wanted to add that extra touch to my wine so I designed my own wine labels and had them printed by a british labels company who did a excellent job. It has made my wine bottle look really great!
