Dear Wine Lover,
There are many professional athletes that have wine brands. Most (almost all) of them have nothing to do with the process or the winemaking. In fact, some may never have tasted the wines prior or even after bottling!
Except Retief Goosen.
Yes, the professional golfer turned wine enthusiast has much to say and do about the wines that carry his name. Much like Greg Norman, Reteif is involved with each step of the evolution of one of his wines.
The Wine of the Month Club was the first in America to feature one of Retief's wines and we are looking at his new brand, The Gander, to arrive in America this year.
Here is his 2009 Sauvignon Blanc under his premium label, the Goose. I will only sell it to you in six packs as it is so nicely packaged and only to my California customers (that way I can ship it just the way I received it from South Africa).
Really nice expression of South African Sauvignon Blanc and from an involved professional athlete.
