Mondays aren’t so bad when you and your colleagues get to hang out in the summer sunshine with Boston legends Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield and Shawn Thornton. You got it; Global Wines got WICKED at the Varitek and Friends Golf Classic this past Monday. This event was hosted by one of our favorite charity organizations, Pitching in for Kids. This young organization, established in 2004, is a nonprofit dedicated to providing specifically earmarked grants designed to improve the lives of children across the New England region through sports-related fundraising events and programs. We were honored to spend the day on the course keeping the golfers hydrated, and we were even more excited to be the exclusive wine for the auction and dinner. We provided some of our favorites: Wicked Fresh Rose, Wicked Bright Pinot Grigio, Wicked Juicy Grenache (Wake’s favorite!) and a little something bubbly, Borgo Del Col Alto Prosecco. With an early shotgun start, we decided to kick off the day serving Mimosas—those were definitely a hole in one!
The event was located at The Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy, MA. This award-winning private membership club overlooks the Boston skyline and is one of the city’s gems for exceptional dining and entertainment. Each hole was presented by a different vendor. Tito’s Vodka, Sam Adams, Capital Grille and Pizzeria Regina all knew how to keep the golfers happy; whether it was with a refreshing cocktail or a freshly made lobster roll. It was a very Monday Funday!
At the Seventh Hole, we provided a personalized tasting for each golfer that came our way! Catherine Varitek got a kick out of our Wicked Wine selection: “I just became a new fan of your #PinotGrigio… dry and crisp! It may be my new favorite!” – @CatherinVaritek, Twitter
