Golfer Fred Couples is in the Wine Business


Golfer Fred Couples and winemaker Mitch Cosentino have gotten into the wine business together, creating Couples & Co, a wine brand from pureCru Napa Valley. Wine reports that Couples first got into wine when he was in his 20s and started talking about a partnership with Cosentino in 2008. The first two offerings are a Super Tuscan style sangiovese and a Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon blend. The Couples & Co 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon sells for $60 and the Couples & Co 2006 California Sangiovese is $32. Both wines have won several awards at wine competitions.
