Explore Selections from To Kalon® Vineyard Company, Curated by Will Blackmon, Wine Enthusiast’s Top 40 Under 40 Tastemaker

Why Will Loves To Kalon Vineyard Company

This wine has so much going for it. First, it’s made from grapes grown in To Kalon Vineyard, North America’s own “grand cru.” Second, it’s made by winemaking legend Andy Erickson, whose hands have shaped some of Napa Valley’s most legendary wines. This wine is big and bold, and while it can be enjoyed now, it has great ageability for future years to come.

Will Blackmon

Over the course of 12 seasons in the NFL, Will Blackmon played for the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, with whom he won Super Bowl 46, and the Jacksonville Jaguars before finishing his career with the Washington Redskins.

During his time playing football, Will discovered and nurtured a passion for wine, which led him to pursue a formal education via the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET), completing level 2 and level 3 certification, as well as the entrance exam to the Court of Master Sommeliers. Will is now widely known as the “NFL Wine Guy.” His VIP Wine Concierge, The WINE MVP, functions as a way to educate, make wine more approachable, and empower those looking to learn more about wine. All of this presented with the idea in mind that when it comes to fine wine, everyone can be an “MVP”.

In 2020, Will was named one of Wine Enthusiast’s “Top 40 Under 40 Tastemakers” in the United States. He has also been featured in USA Today, Wine Spectator, & VinePair to name a few.
