"...every bottle you enjoy helps less-fortunate kids participate in playing, watching and learning from the world's best game." - Wayne Gretzky

I understand this wine isn't available in stores, how are we supposed to help the children? The picture of Gretsky on the web page belies the fact that he made a living kicking the crap out of people. Awesome.

Gretzky was way more of a finesse player than a bruiser. In fact, they called the back of the net his "office". He would skate around back there and feed pucks to players in front of the net with absurd accuracy. That's not to say he didn't score plenty of goals himself.

Hey! How did you put the details for the wine on your talk entry again? I forgot.
And Wayne Gretzky? I have this weird idea in my head about sports people promoting wine and colognes. I always feel like it'll either smell or taste like sweat. ha!

@Sung: some people would be falling over themselves for Gretsky's sweat. Anyway, the wine detail link is in here because I went to a wine detail page and clicked "Start the Discussion", below the label image. That is how you make a wine-specific topic!

This peaked my interest ... I took a look through the website and found that the Napa Cab is only available in the US. It seems that it cannot be purchased in Canada.

As for the Mr. Gretzky aka 'The Great One' ... he was a artist on the ice. He could do things on other player could do and make it look easy. I hated him growing up because he would destroy and ridicule the teams I cheered for. In terms of greatness in a sport he is the equivalent of Pele, Tiger Woods and Micheal Jordan. Now, I look back and appreciate that I got to see the player that will simply be referred to the greatest ever in hockey.

Now if his wine lives up to what he did on the ice, I'm being 10 cases!
