For over 15 years, NBA star Dwayne Wade has played the game he loves at the highest level, forging a path to success and it’s no different from his other love; wine. D Wade Cellars—the real MVP of celebrity wines—displays the same power, finesse and distinction Wade showed on the court.
As one of the most celebrated athletes in the world, Wade was exposed to living well, which sparked his love interest of great Napa Valley wines. He enjoyed good food and great wine with teammates Chris Bosh and Lebron James, who also have their own side projects, much like other NBA stars. Wade looked to fellow friend Jayson Pahlmeyer, a leader in fine wine to help turn his wine dream into reality.
After witnessing a harvest in the Napa Valley in 2014, D Wade Cellars was born, and shortly after, The (2012) Wade Cab was released. Today, Wade Cellars produces Three by Wade Rosé, and Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. With Wade’s recent retirement from the NBA, we can only assume wine is on his mind.
If you’ve ever wanted to have a drink with the basketball great, he will be hosting Crew Classé at Home, a series launched by Toronto-based wine agency, Halpern Wine. Join the zoom chat taking place April 1, 2020 at 7 p.m. EST with Wade and Antonio Galloni, one of the world’s top wine critics, to get schooled on all things wine. Register here and get your own bottle of Wade wine delivered from Grapestars before joining the webinar.
