As is tradition in most of sports, but especially baseball, the winning team in a Championship Series celebrates their victory with champagne in their clubhouse after the game. Giddy 20 to 30-year-olds don goggles and spray their teammates with sparkling wine. Of course, some of it gets drunk too.

Nothing against Korbell, but you would think that the billionaire owners of these teams could spring for something of a slightly better caliber bubbly.


The Kansas City Royals won the American League this week to make their first trip to the World Series since 1985 and they break out a $12 California Champagne?

The Red Sox did the same thing last year, spraying Korbell after winning it all. You would think that they could at least break out some Westport Rivers Brut from the Bay State and keep it local.

If the Patriots go on a deep playoff run, let’s promise ourselves to pummel owner Robert Kraft with emails and letters, encouraging him to class up the celebration.

For the beer lovers, come on in Saturday from 4-6 and see what everyone is talking about: The Narragansett Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout.

Excelsior Winery

South Africa 
Crops have been grown on the Excelsior Estate in the Roberton wine valley since 1859. As the decades progressed, it became clear that the
warm, dry climate was perfect for growing grapes. Today, the farm is dedicated mostly to wine production. They export their fruit-forward wines to more than 20 countries worldwide. We carry three of their value-oriented wines, perfect for every night of the week.
  Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Chardonnay 2013
Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
All Varietals $7.99
Mulderbosch Faithful Hound
2011 $22.99
Since we are in South Africa, we might as well throw in one of my favorite all-time Southern Hemisphere wines. Made from a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, this dark red features smokey aromas reminiscent of bacon cooking on the griddle at an old diner. Rich blackberries and cherries combine with stoney earth to create a long, elegant finish. Throw some meat on the grill and enjoy.
