Wisconsin, which prides itself as America’s cheese capital, will host the 2020 Ryder Cup, September 21-26, 2021, at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Kohler. Established in 1927, the Ryder Cup is a biennial competition that pits 12 top professional golfers from the U.S. against the top professional golfers from Europe in a head-to-head match play. It has become one of the world’s most significant sporting events, captivating an audience of millions around the globe. Golf enthusiasts and wine connoisseurs can now indulge and pair Wisconsin’s famous cheeses with a limited edition series of wines inspired by the 2020 Ryder Cup.
WX Brands and the PGA of America are introducing the Silver Spur and True Myth Limited Edition Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines which celebrate intrigue, transcendent experiences, and the excitement of this year’s Ryder Cup.
The first release in this one-of-a-kind collection is the Silver Spur Napa Valley Limited Edition Cabernet Sauvignon. The product of award-winning veteran winemaker Linda Trotta, it delivers all the hallmarks of a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Vineyards from throughout the valley were hand-selected by Trotta, and their grapes blended to create this powerful wine. The collection includes the limited-edition True Myth Edna Valley Chardonnay and True Myth Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon, crafted by Baileyana Winery winemaker Rob Takigawa.
The Silver Spur and True Myth labels feature 12 stars representing the players on the American team.
“I loved creating this special bottling in celebration of the Ryder Cup,” said Trotta. “I aimed to create a full-bodied and layered wine worthy of this one-of-a-kind global sporting event. The result exhibits elegant flavors of black cherry and ripe plum with a backbone of refined tannins to hold it all in place – a delicious accompaniment to holiday celebrations!”
These wines are available through WX Brands’ popular Revel Wine Club and at select PGA of America’s future US-based host sites, including Woodlake Market in Kohler, Wisconsin, home of 2020 Ryder Cup host site Whistling Straits, and at fine restaurants and retailers across the country.
