If the San Francisco Giants manage to win the World Series this year, they will be able to celebrate with their own, team-branded wine.  Major League Baseball's 2012 World Series champions have teamed up with California wine house Mumm Napa to create two Napa Valley sparkling wines. Both wines are licensed by Wine by Design, the official wine licensee for Major League Baseball Properties. Championship Brut, a limited-edition wine created to commemorate the Giants' 2012 World Series Championship and San Francisco Giants Brut Prestige are both available at AT&T Park, select restaurants, and on the Giants website. “Mumm Napa has been the celebratory sparkling wine of choice for both our 2010 and 2012 World Series Championships. We are pleased to extend this relationship with Mumm Napa to our fans in 2013, with the creation of these unique Giants wines,” said Mario Alioto, senior vice president, Giants business operations. (via Press Release) While the Championship Brut will only be produced in limited quantities (2,012 bottles) the Giants Brut Prestige is a special bottling of Mumm Napa's Brut Prestige wine.  The Giants actually celebrated with the Brut Prestige during last year's playoffs and enjoyed it so much that it has now become the official sparkling wine of the team. “Mumm Napa and the San Francisco Giants is an ideal pairing,” said Ludovic Dervin, Mumm Napa’s winemaker (and an avid Giants fan.) “We’re both interested in celebrating life’s victories – whether they are on the baseball field, at the ballpark, or in your home – and hope that these new wines will bring that same feeling of victory and celebration to Giants and Mumm Napa fans alike.” To add to the partnership, Mumm Napa wine tastings will be featured at select games and as noted, during team celebrations.  Every Giants team member will also receive a bottle of the Championship Brut with an etched label featuring their name and number.
