I thought I was the only one here who didn't know about the wine.

I only found this about the wine.

C'mon, buy this

If it was good enough for the likes of Greg Norman and Shane Warne, why not Lleyton Hewitt as well. Yep, in news from Adelaide yesterday, the world's No.1 tennis player has agreed to have his name put on a new premium wine label.

All of which will come as a surprise to those who know our Lleyton as more of a cola drinker than a wine swiller, but it is a reputation that will change in a hurry if winemaker O'Leary Walker Wines get its way.

In all, only 500 cases (6000 bottles) of 2002 Adelaide Hills chardonnay and 2001 Clare Valley-Adelaide Hills cabernet-merlot will be made, the bottles bearing a small Hewitt signature and an "H" in the shape of a tennis court.

Alas, don't expect to spot too many of the Hewitt vintage in your local bottleshop, because, according to O'Leary Walker, most of the product will be destined for the American market.

Hewitt has been overseas during the bottling process, leaving most of the commercial dealings to his parents, Glynn and Cherilyn, who have wine interests in South Australia. According to Lleyton's father, the intention was to build the Hewitt wine as a quality product and for that reason the label is deliberately not ostentatious. The wine is expected to retail for about $30 in Australia and $US25 overseas.

Re: lleytons wine

I would love to try some but it will probably send me sleepy (not much of a wine drinker)
