PANTHERS PROVIDE AN EXERCISE IN FOOTBALL AND FINE WINE
Published October 10, 1997
NC-based Vinnovative Imports has teamed with NFL Panthers President Mark Richardson to create Catalyst, the official wine of Ericsson Stadium, according to a report of the Myrtle Beach SUN NEWS. Catalyst, a South African wine featuring both Merlot and Chardonnay, will be available at local NC grocery stores through mid-November. After that, the wine will be available only to patrons on the club level and in the suites of the Stadium. The Catalyst label features Panthers colors and a photo of Ericsson Stadium. Vinnovative Imports Owner Peter Clinton said the wine "enhances the trend-setting reputation (Ericsson Stadium) has already earned" (Myrtle Beach SUN NEWS, 10/9).
