Wine Spectator: Straight Talk With CJ McCollumNovember 20, 2020
There aren’t many “off days” for Portland Trail Blazer CJ McCollum. Aside from being one of the NBA’s top shooting guards, the Ohio native has been getting into the wine game on his home court in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. In September, McCollum released his first wine, the McCollum Heritage 91 Pinot Noir Chehalem Mountains 2018, which he says is an ode to his childhood, his wife and his state’s signature grape.
In a recent episode of Straight Talk with Wine Spectator, McCollum brought out a bottle and spoke with senior editor MayAnn Worobiec about discovering wine, his new Pinot partnership with Adelsheim and exchanging favorite sips with teammate and What’s in Your Glass? star Carmelo Anthony.—Shawn ZylberbergSubscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
