The Red Wings are proud to introduce an exclusive variety of fine wines featuring Red Wings Red, a fruit-flavored Merlot, and Red Wings White, a lighter styled Chardonnay, now available at local retailers throughout southeast Michigan.
The Red Wings wines coincide with the team colors of the Red Wings winged-wheel, matching the natural grape varieties of red and white. Each wine bottle’s label uniquely mimics the base color of the red home jersey on the Red Wings Red bottle and the white road jersey on Red Wings White.
Fans attending Red Wings home games can experience Red Wings Red and Red Wings White by the glass or bottle in the Olympia Club and also by the bottle in any Executive Suite at Joe Louis Arena.
Red Wings Red is a fruit forward 2008 North Coast Merlot defined by aromas and flavors of raspberry and blackberry. Expressions of coffee and cocoa frame the mid-palate, while a supporting spiciness balances out the soft-velvety finish.
Red Wings White is a lighter styled 2008 Central Coast Chardonnay offering fruit-forward apple and pear aromas with hint of lemon zest and vanilla. Lush fruit flavors are joined by creaminess on the palate, followed by a lingering crisp finish.
