About Phillies Wine Produced by Chaddsford Winery

Chaddsford Winery has a thirty-year tradition of creating regionally grown, high quality wines - among them, Phillies Wine, newly available for the 2015 season at Citizens Bank Park (Harry the K's, High and Inside Pub, Diamond Club and the Hall of Fame Club), as well as at select retailers across the tri-state area and mlb.com/wine.

Phillies Wine is a proprietary blend of Chancellor, Chambourcin, Pinot Noir and Noiret that pairs well with a variety of foods, including lamb, game and beef dishes, savory sausage, as well as Mexican foods or hard goat cheeses. It has a bright red color, nicely integrated soft tannins and its structure is enhanced by a well-balanced acidity. The wine boasts black cherry and hints of black pepper on the palate with a subtle cocoa finish.
