Wines at Yankees Stadium
Anytime I get the chance to go to Yankee Stadium is a treat…but Monday night was in the “amazing” category. One of our wine cellar clients asked me to join him for the game. The seats happened to be Legend seats…which allowed us access to the Legends Suite Club and hospitality area.
I was equally impressed with the wine list. We chose a Columbia crest reserve which we all agreed was outstanding. Having heard all of the rumblings of the expensive seats, I have to say they were well worth it. The staff walked me through the wine storage area and pointed out some of their favorite picks. The sommelier shared the Ornellaia and three other picks,which included a riesling which really complemented the crab legs!
This is not your daddy’s Yankee Stadium. From our seats we were able to enjoy a bottle of wine, crab legs and of course all the peanuts we could eat. I think everyone knows how well the Yankees run their baseball business but I had no idea how well they run their hospitality business. All in all, it was a terrific night with the Yankees win, great wine, and great friends. We cannot begin to express the gratitude Joe and myself have for ALL of our amazing customers, many of whom have become great friends.
