Do you ever just wake up in the middle of the night, thinking to yourself, “Hey--I wonder what former Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Drew Bledsoe is up to these days?”
If so, today’s your lucky day.
ESPN recently caught up with Bledsoe in his hometown of Walla Walla, Washington. Turns out, Bledsoe has been a wine buff since his playing days. After he retired he returned to Walla Walla and bought 70 acres of land, on which he established the McQueen Vineyard.
For Bledsoe, the idea was sparked when he realized that retirement was approaching.
"When you look at facing retirement in your mid-30s, and all of a sudden the outlet for that passion and work ethic goes away, you can't just sit back in a rocking chair and be retired at 35," Bledsoe said, per ESPN. "I'm not a good enough golfer to play golf every day."
So instead of hitting the links, the former Patriots’, Bills and Cowboys established Doubleback brand wine, specializing in cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petite verdot. For more, visit Doubleback.com.
