Sacramento, Calif. – Today, the Sacramento Kings and Bogle Vineyards & Winery announced the release of their specially crafted “Proud Roots” 2016 vintage wine. Proud Roots will be exclusively available at various beverage stands and premium spaces throughout Golden 1 Center and the Bogle Family’s Tasting Room in Clarksburg starting on February 2. Made from grapes harvested in 2016, the inaugural year of Golden 1 Center, the Proud Roots blend celebrates the arena and Sacramento region’s prominent agricultural ties and Farm-to-Fork movement.
“Both the Kings and Bogle are committed to being leaders in green practices and serving as examples of how businesses can serve as models of sustainability,” said Sacramento Kings Chief Operating Officer Matina Kolokotronis. “Proud Roots is the perfect embodiment of our partnership and dedication to our region.”
“The Sacramento Kings are leaders in sustainability efforts and our family and staff are excited to partner with them to create something our entire region can be proud of,” said Jody Bogle of Bogle Vineyard & Winery. “As long-time Kings fans, the Bogle family looks forward to enjoying the wine with other Kings fans and the Sacramento community.”
Proud Roots is sustainably-certified by the California Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing for adhering to stringent eco-friendly growing and winemaking practices. The Certified Green seal, given only to wines which meet key sustainability requirements, is featured prominently on the back of the bottle to showcase these efforts.
This wine offers guests and fans the opportunity to enjoy complex flavors of blueberries, blackberries, clove and cream soda – complete with a full-bodied finish. This special edition wine features Bogle’s brawny Clarksburg Petite Sirah blended with a touch of a plush Malbec variety.
The 2016 Proud Roots red wine is a celebration of the partnership between the Kings and Bogle as both share a commitment to community, sustainability quality and excellence. The grapes of the wine, harvested from Bogle’s Sanchez Ranch, nestled against the Sacramento River, are consistent with the Kings sustainability and sourcing charter, sourcing 90 percent of food within 150 miles of the arena.
