Baldacci Wines Represent College Basketball Teams

 

March Madness is a time when College Basketball teams get to prove themselves, showing who the best team in the Nation is. Each team is known for its unique mix of players, having a specific skill set, with certain attributes they bring to the “dance”. Similarly here at Baldacci, each one of our wines has a unique profile with certain traits which make them different from the others.

 

 


The Duke Blue Devils Basketball team has the fourth-highest number of all-time wins of any NCAA men’s basketball program. They are a team with a longstanding history of success in basketball and they are what I consider a very traditional team. Dukes’ current coach, Mike Krzyzewski has been at Duke since 1980. He and his team have become ambassadors for College Basketball.

Baldacci’s Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon is our ambassador for wine. This Cab is a representation of what Baldacci really is about; a single varietal that stands out with so much flavor and complexity. It has the ability to age well and is still so graceful in its youth. Similar with Duke’s Basketball team our Black Label Cabernet is a real powerhouse and makes itself known to those who enjoy a glass.

 

 

Another team that brings a lot to the table similar to our IV Sons, Fraternity is the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team. Just like the Fraternity (our Red Blend), the Wildcats are a very versatile team. Each player a star in his own right but when they come together and play as a team, they are unstoppable. What makes both Kentucky basketball and IV Sons, Fraternity so exceptional is the way in which the mix and blend (of varietals) work so well to make them both stellar performers.

 

 

 

The Elizabeth Pinot Noir is such a unique Pinot that goes against the grain and really stands out. It makes itself known, by being much bigger and bolder for such a light delicate wine. In a similar fashion the mighty Gonzaga Bulldogs have stood out for many years, despite not being part of one of the power conferences like the ACC or PAC12. What this Pinot and the Bulldogs have in common is their continued high level of performance against the competition.

 

 

Our Cinderella Story here at Baldacci Family Vineyards is the Sorelle Chardonnay. Similar to the newly recognized Wichita State Shockers men’s basketball program, this underdog of wines has really surprised a lot of people and demonstrated its success with the 2012 Sorelle Chardonnay taking home Best-in-Class at the SF Chronical Tasting. While they might not be the most well-known against the real titans, they’re definitely poised and ready to prove that “the little guy” can sometimes surprise you!
