World Cup football and World Cup wine

World Cup football and World Cup wine

You know a man has reached the pinnacle of fame when only his first name need be mentioned and it is recognized world wide. In Argentina the name Leo is immediately recognizable and makes one think of football, just like saying the word “Malbec” makes one think of Mendoza.

Leo Messi, Argentine born soccer star extraordinaire, who gained his fame in Europe, is regarded by many as one of the greatest footballers to have ever played the sport. Joining forces with the Valentine Bianchi family of Mendoza, they have created the Leo label which so far includes a white Torrontes and of course the Leo Malbec 2011.

Many athletes have ventured into the beverage world to either endorse a product or promote their own product. This collaboration has turned out a very well made wine that combines the best of what Argentina has to offer, Malbec for its wine and Leo for its football. We are offering the 2011 Leo Premium Malbec for $21.99 and $19.79 when you purchase 6 bottles or more. With the World Cup just about to start this is a great way to kick things off. The scores for the wine are in, 90 points from Stephen Tanzer, but time will tell what happens in the 2014 soccer world cup.
