Goals to Grapes: Gretzky Wine


Wayne Gretzky, recognized as the greatest hockey player of all-time, is joining the celebrity rush to crush grapes. The Wayne Gretzky Estates is set to open in Ontario's Niagara region in 2009.

Labels for the new wines feature his iconic number 99.

Creekside Estate Winery in Jordan Station is partnering with Gretzky on the project. Gretzky is releasing three wines, a 2005 Meritage, 2006 Chardonnay and a 2005 Vidal icewine, which are already on sale. Part of the proceeds from the wine go to support the Wayne Gretzky Foundation, which funds youth hockey for needy kids.
