Time for Wine

In honor of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver happening right now,  order yourself a bottle of Wayne Gretzky’s “No. 99” Wine!

That’s right – The Great One has his own winery in eastern Canada’s Niagara Peninsula.  All of the No. 99 products are 100% Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA), meaning that they’re made from 100% Canadian-grown grapes.

A portion of wine sales also goes to support Gretzky’s hockey foundation for children.
