Italian Wine Podcast Episode 567 | Will Blackmon, the “NFL Wine Guy”
Juliana Colangelo of Colangelo & Partners sits down in conversation with Will Blackmon, the “NFL Wine Guy”
Will Blackmon played 12 seasons in the NFL. He played for the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, (with whom he won Super Bowl 46), he also played for the Jacksonville Jaguars and finished his career with the Washington Redskins.
Will’s passion is wine. Due to his strong desire to learn more about wine, he went on to complete his level 2 and level 3 certifications, through the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, also known as the WSET. He also passed his Intro exam through the Court of Master’s Sommelier. Will is now coined as the “NFL Wine Guy”. He launched a VIP Wine Concierge business called, The WINE MVP as a way to educate, make wine more approachable as well as 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 Enthusiasts “Top 40 Under 40 Tastemakers” in the United States. He has also been featured in USA Today, Wine Spectator, & Vine Pair to name a few.
