Chicago Bulls Superstar Dwyane Wade jumped into the wine game by creating Wade Cellars in partnership with iconic Napa winemaker Jayson Pahlmeyer. Aside from experimenting with tons of Napa wines, Wade began to appreciate wine in his life as a conversation starter, and something to enjoy with friends. A popular photo on social media last summer was of Wade, LeBron James, Chris Paul, and Carmelo Anthony on vacation enjoying wine.
The initial release of the wine was in China only. Wade has a large fan base through his shoe endorsement with Li Ning and the NBA’s large overall fan base in China. Add to this China’s place in the wine world where they’re expected to produce the most wine in the next decade. As of last year the country’s total vineyard area overtook France’s to become the 2nd biggest in the world (Spain being the top).
