You’d think he’d be more of a Blatz man, but Mike Ditka knows his wine…at least enough to put out his own brand. Fans flocked to have him autograph bottles..and other stuff.. in Chicago.
Beneath the gruff exterior beats the heart of a wine connoiseur. Former NFL coach Mike Ditka launched his new label in the city that made hiim famous.
20 years after the Chicago Bears’ Super Bowl XX run, he’s still as popular as ever. Fans came from all over and waited in line for hours at a recent autograph session.
Meanwhile, the autographed bottles of the more limited editions are selling on eBay–as long as you have a liquor license.
