One of the main reasons is that we have no vineyards or wineries. Our celebs might as well get stuck into something else first. Another is that our market is a small one and a good few of our 'celebs' aren't really well known overseas. Let's face it the name isn't there to sell the celeb, it's there to sell the product!
Christy O'Connor Jr Selection Red Wine
Christy O’Connor Jr Private Selection Red Wine
Really fine wine from the Algarve where fruit thrives in a warm and long growing season. Rich and lightly peppered fruit rises from the glass. The palate has a rounded and rustic charm to it where strong dark fruits and a fine structure combine well to produce a wine well suited to fine dining, rich roasts and memorable barbecues.
Last Friday evening O'Briens Wines, at the Beacon Centre, hosted a celeb bottle signing of the Christy wines. I'll tell you now, Christy jr will sell these wines anywhere he turns up to do so. Such is his natural warmth and charm. He really does know when and how to turn it on. He was in his element and a joy to watch in action - as he was back in 1989 and over the course of a marvellous golfing career.
