12 Aug Oliver Winery & Vineyards Named Official Wine of the Indianapolis Colts
Partnership Launches The Colts Collection Wines
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (August 10, 2020) — Oliver Winery & Vineyards is now the official wine of the Indianapolis Colts. Marking the start of a three-year partnership between two Indiana icons, Oliver Winery presents the exclusive Colts Collection — an approachable and easy-drinking series of wines rooted in quality and craft.
“We are proud to represent Indiana as a 100% employee-owned company that brings high-quality, innovative wines to the table,” said Julie Adams, Oliver Winery president. “As we join forces with the Colts, we are excited to bring out the best of Indiana with this collection of wines and look forward to future collaborations.”
“Today’s announcement unites two Hoosier businesses and creates a partnership that brings together fans of both great football and great wine,” said Roger VanDerSnick, Colts chief sales & marketing officer. “We look forward to working with one of America’s top wineries, which includes featuring many of Oliver Winery’s fine products for Colts fans on gamedays.”
The first series of the Colts Collection by Oliver Winery features two limited edition varieties available this summer — a semi-sweet rosé and a dry red blend. The Rosé is a gorgeous pink wine with beautifully bright flavor, showcasing hints of strawberry and citrus followed by a delightful, crisp finish. Smooth and sippable, the Red Blend features berry aromas, rich flavors of currant and spice, subtle tannins, and a lasting finish with hints of toasted oak. Find more information about the collection at Colts.com/wine.
Along with the Colts Collection Rosé and Red Blend, additional Oliver wines including Pinot Grigio, Blueberry Moscato, and Sweet Red will be available at Lucas Oil Stadium for purchase. Fans can also enjoy a signature Colts wine cocktail featuring Oliver Blueberry Moscato, available exclusively during home games.
