SANTA CLARA, California (February 9, 2016)—Small, premium Mi Sueño Winery from the Napa Valley was selected to be featured at Super Bowl 50. Owners Rolando and Lorena Herrera poured their wines for special guests in the Citrix Owners Club Suites at Levi’s Stadium. Mi Sueño wines were also selected to be poured at the reception for the Super Bowl 50 NFL Owners’ Dinner at City Hall. The meal was prepared by renowned chef Thomas Keller of French Laundry and Per Se fame.
“Mi Sueño is Spanish for ‘my dream,’” explained Herrera. “I have been living that dream for 19 years, representing my family and making world class wines. Lorena and I are so honored to share our wines at the NFL Owners’ Dinner prepared by Thomas Keller and with special guests at the Super Bowl.”
Super Bowl 50 saw the Denver Broncos defense manhandle the Carolina Panthers for a 24 to 10 victory. Quarterback Peyton Manning won his 200th game, an all-time high for NFL quarterbacks. Close to 70,000 people attended the game and millions more watched the game on television. Coldplay, Bruno Mars, and Beyoncé entertained at halftime, and Lady Gaga performed the national anthem.
Rolando and Lorena Herrera are the owners of Mi Sueño Winery in the Napa Valley. The winery produces 10,000 cases of premium wine from several different appellations. Ninety-five percent of those wines are estate grown and bottled from their own 40 acres in Napa and Sonoma counties. In addition to their Mi Sueño brand, they produce small ultra-premium wines under the Herrera label.
