Vandal Crest Wines

Brian Golden - Wednesday, September 05, 2012

One of autumn's finest rituals got under way last week, as college football teams across the country embarked on a new season, with the hopes and emotions of their fans riding on every snap.  Many of these fans got their early season wish, but if you wear the familiar black and gold or blue and orange that marks Idaho's in-state rivalry, you are not a happy camper.  Bronco Nation is not used to such tragedies, and is struggling to cope this week.  But if you are a Vandal fan, do not despair.  The folks at Camas Prarie Winery have found a way for you to drown your sorrows while still showing your school spirit!!

They have released Vandal Crest Wines, a series of high quality wines bottled with labels showcasing some of U of I's most famous landmarks.  The line includes Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris selections coming from some of Washington's most prestigious vineyard sites.  And if creating this kind of collectible wasn't enough, a percentage of all sales goes to support the Vandal's general scholarship fund.  I wouldn't dare get in the middle of this rivalry, but U of I is clearly winning the game of wine...

If they win, you can celebrate.  If they lose, you can mourn.  All in the name of a good cause.  Be sure to pick up these wines before the next game!
