Famed musician B.B. King now has another venture to add to his list of accomplishments. New Yorkers love his B.B. King’s Blues Club for a fun night out and now they can pregame before going there with the B.B. King Signature Collection. In collaboration with Votto Vines Importing, the legend is dolling out wines across the US. The Signature Collection is comprised of both a red and white wine to please every wino. Both wines are sourced from award-winning Bodega Santa Cruz Winery, located in Almansa, Spain.
The B.B. King Signature Collection Red 2010 is a Crianza blend made from Garnacha, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, while the B.B. King Signature Collection White 2011 is made of 100% Verdejo grapes. We had the opportunity to try the red wine and we must say, we were not disappointed. Having lived in Spain for a brief time, we’ve learned that it’s hard to go wrong with a Spanish wine and that statement holds true. If the white is anything like the red, we expect it to be just as delicious.
These wines pair fantastically with an array of foods – try the red with a nice, juicy steak or the white with a grilled fish and it will bring out the flavors of the dish. The B.B. King Signature Collection is available for purchase for $13.99 at select retailers and online here.
