Golf Great Annika Sorenstam's Wine Project

default-image

The NFL has Mike Ditka and his Kick Ass Red (a blend of Zin, Syrah and Petite Sirah) and Joe Montana’s Montagia Cabernet Sauvignon. NASCAR fans can buy a bottle under race car driver Jeff Gordon’s eponymous label. And Greg Norman is nearly as well known for wine as he is his legendary golf game. But why aren't there any female sports stars making wine? This is the question golf great Annika Sorenstam posed when she sat down with me yesterday to talk about her latest passion project, ANNIKA wine.

Sorenstam said she’s been working on the idea for nearly two years and is partnering with Wente Vineyards to produce 635 cases of Syrah for the first release, which will be available next May. Sorenstam, who loves to cook and entertain, has been hands-on throughout the project and is currently putting the finishing touches on the label. If all goes well, she hopes to follow up with a Chardonnay and  a red blend.
