Lebron James Is a True Wine Lover

Lebron James Is a True Wine Lover

The future NBA Hall of Famer, Lebron James can handle a corkscrew as well as he handles a basketball. He along with Kevin Love has a $1200 wine night this past weekend.

Cleveland Cavaliers very own Lebron James has become quite the wine lover. He sure knows good wine. On a recent Saturday evening, Lebron with some friends including Kevin Love broke out some pretty darn nice bottles of fermented grape juice. Wines from Burgundy, Napa, Oregon, Italy and more. Even breaking out some great older vintage wines like the 1997 Sassicaia which if you’ve never had is worth tasting when you can find it.

Check out Lebron James lineup, some truly great bottles. Which ones would you want to try?

One of these wines, our staff got to enjoy last week while on a trip to Oregon. The Antica Terra Pinot Noir and it was truly amazing. Winemakers Maggie and Trevor offered us a private tasting of their beautiful pinot noirs and their Syrah. Kind of fun that the Taste CLE staff and Lebron James were drinking the same wine in the same week. Here was our lineup in Oregon.
