Anyone seen or tried the Red Wing wine. It's in the local stores around Jackson. Red wine red label white wine white label. I'm not much into wine but I bought some for my sister-in-law to take back to my brother in Washington. Yet he won't open it. I might get some for myself just because.

Is it possible that someone in the area could send me a couple of bottles? Private message me if interested. Obviously I will pay for them :hehe:

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

I've seen both the merlot and chardonnay at a few of the Meijers stores I've been to. It's not bad, but, it tastes like a $12 bottle of wine, with a $20-$25 label on it. That being said, they seem to sell a lot of it in The Olympia Club.

Here's a link about it from The Red Wings site. Link at bottom of story to area retailers.

Also for those into collectables and/or wine, grab your favorite NHL alumnis bottle today. Gordie and Ted are a must have.

I've seen it but I refuse to buy or drink it becasue it's from California and with the simple fact that the Wings hold their Training Camp in Traverse City, Michigan you would've thought they would have worked something out with one of the local wineries here in Michigan. There are about 50 or so Wineries around Michigan so it's not like they couldn't find a Winery right here and support our States Economy. It's probably the one Red Wings item I won't buy.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I'll stick to my Château Petrus and Romanée-Conti.

Just kidding - though I'm always wary of 'celebrity' type wines - they tend to not be very good as well as being overpriced.

all hockey players like 2 party

instead of other sports who roll with gangs, beat there wives up, have dog fights, and shoot themselves in the dick. sure there are some instances where hockey players do dumb s*** but 2 a lesser extent, but way less. if hockey players get in trouble its usually just for partying 2 hard, and we've all been there.


idk how i got so off topic there sorry.

I tried a Gordie Howe white wine once. It was surprisingly good for a $5.99 bottle of wine, especially coming from a guy who prefers red.

How many of you that have gone to camp before have been to the Wineries in Traverse City?? We've been to every single one of them. A lot of great Wines are made here in Michigan and most of them are from Traverse City. Our Favorite is the Reisling but I do tend to like some of the dry wines as well. Anyone have a favorite Winery or Michigan Wine??
