The Buffalo Sabres announced today that Bully Hill has signed on to become the team’s official wine for the 2007-08 season.
Bully Hill will be producing a limited edition Sabres Branded Wine: Sabres Red and Sabres White. Sabres Red is a blend of New York red grape varieties combined to make a distinctive and mellow blend. Sabres White is an elegant German style wine with delicate floral aromas. Both Sabres Red and Sabres White will be available in local stores and on game nights at HSBC Arena.
“We are very pleased to continue our relationship with Bully Hill," said John Livsey, the Sabres’ VP of Business Development. “The combination of the two quality brands make this partnership a winning combination.”
Bully Hill Vineyards is located in Hammondsport, N.Y. Bully Hill Farms was started by Greyton H. Taylor and Walter S. Taylor in 1958. Walter S. Taylor represents the fourth generation of his family to be involved in grape growing and wine making. The family has been either growing grapes or producing wine since 1878. Bully Hill was the first small estate winery in the Keuka Lake area since prohibition, and became the cornerstone for the growth of many estate wineries. To date, over 11 wineries grace the Keuka Lake region.
