(NAPA, Calif.) – Dry Creek’s Truett Hurst Winery has signed on as a founding sponsor of the Safeway Open Golf Tournament held at Napa’s Silverado Country Club October 12th through 16th. Truett Hurst’s Colby Red and Curious Beasts Blood Red Wine will be featured in the Safeway Food & Wine Pavilion throughout the official PGA Tour event.
“It’s an exciting opportunity to have two of our most important brands showcased in front of a wide group of golf and wine enthusiasts!” said company founder Phil Hurst.
Colby Red Wine is flavorful cuvee with a cause. Daryl and Colby Groom launched this wine in 2009 and have raised over $750,000 for heart health charities. Hurst says he hopes exposure at the Open will help raise awareness of the brand and achieve its goal of generating over $1 million for charity.
Curious Beasts is a red blend of Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Hurst says it is a unique blend, purposely made to be a “beast of a wine,” with plenty of tannin and rich black fruit character. The brand also offers a Chardonnay and recently released Cabernet Sauvignon.
With golfers Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar heading the professional field and NBA stars Steph Curry and Andre Iguodala participating in the Pro-Am Tournament, “Truett Hurst is honored to be a founding sponsor,” Hurst says. “Golf, wine, food and music…this is what wine country is all about.”
