Wine Spectator: NBA Star CJ McCollum Buys 318-Acre Oregon Property For VineyardSeptember 17, 2021
When it comes to his wine brand, NBA star and vintner CJ McCollum and his wife, Elise, came to play. The couple have purchased a 318-acre property, located in Oregon’s Yamhill-Carlton appellation, for the Portland Trail Blazer’s McCollum Heritage 91 wine label. The purchase price and identity of the seller were not disclosed.
The deal is part of the McCollums’ long-term commitment to making world-class wines in Oregon, a process they started when they partnered with Adelsheim Vineyard to produce McCollum Heritage 91, which debuted last year with a 2018 Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir.
