Napa Wine Experience for 8 or 16 with Charles Woodson!


Brand 1865Company

Enjoy a gourmet lunch and wine pairings with "TwentyFour Wines," and its founder Charles Woodson!

Most wine labels or tasting rooms are started by sports figures after they have retired. As of 2015 co-owner Charles Woodson remarkably entered his 18th year in the National Football League – having played for his college team (University of Michigan) and two professional teams, the Green Bay Packers and the Oakland Raiders.

Charles Woodson has enjoyed a storied career in the NFL and certainly a long one where according to the NFL Players Association the average career length is only 3.3 years. Charles was born in Ohio, went to the University of Michigan for college and took home a Heisman Award trophy in 1997, beating another now prominent NFL player – Peyton Manning. He began his NFL Career with the Oakland Raiders, spent a number of years with the Green Bay Packers (where he won a Super Bowl) and currently is back with the Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have been coming to the Napa Valley for their annual pre-season training camp (at Napa Valley College) for many years. It was during the pre-season training camp in 1998 during his first stint with the Oakland Raiders that he was introduced to wine. Taking a break from football he headed up valley to eat – at Bistro Don Giovanni’s. He was curious why many of the customers were already drinking wine at 11:30 am. Enjoying additional meals in the valley he noticed wine was an integral component with food. His curiosity was piqued.
