World Cup Wines

photo (13)The FIFA World Cup™ is the biggest single-event sporting competition in the world.

The competition has been played every four years since the inaugural tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946 when it was not held because of the Second World War.

The 19 FIFA World Cup tournaments have been won by eight different national teams. Brazil has won five times and they are the only team to have played in every tournament. The other winners are Italy, with four titles; Germany, with three wins; Argentina and inaugural winners Uruguay, with two; and England, France, and Spain, with one title each.

To celebrate the World Cup we invite you to check out our World Cup display with wines from all over the world.

We have Plavic Mali from Croatia, it’s a cross between ancestral Zinfandel and Dobričić . The name refers to the small blue grapes that the vines produce: in Croatian plavo means blue; mali means small.

The famous Hand of God Malbec from Argentina – This wine represents Argentina’s controversial goal in 1986 to win the World Cup.
Diego Maradona’s ‘Hand of God‘ effort is one of the most controversial goals in soccer history.

From South Africa we have an amazing wine called Wolf Trap. No evidence of wolves has ever been found though, so we created this wine to remind us of the mysteries and legends of days gone by. The Wolf Trap is a rich, deep red blend that includes Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Viognier.

Greece offers Malagouzia, this is a white Greek winegrape that was virtually extinct until Domaine Carras in the late 20th century began to cultivate this ancient variety for varietal wine production. The grape is highly aromatic and has the potential to produce soft, elegant wines.

Brazil YES they have wine. The first vines were brought to Brazil by the Portuguese in 1532. Try an awesome Moscato by Terra Andina.

We have many more wines from all the countries involved in the World Cup.  Stop by and pick some up for your World Cup Party!

Cheers
Teresa
