CINCINNATI - There's a new wine-bottling technology available right at your seat at Great American Ball Park, brought here by Baseball Hall of Famer Joe Morgan.
Morgan is partnering with Steelhead Vineyards in Sonoma, Calif., on a new, all-in-one bottle and glass format.
The wines recently debuted at the ballpark in the revolutionary format, and fans can now enjoy a nice chardonnay or merlot while cheering on the Reds, all right from their seat.
Vendors who normally carry beer, water and soda have added the convenient wine drink to their repertoire, and with that comes some creative ways to get fans' attention to the new offering.
That's right, Reds fans, that vendor wasn't joking when he yelled, "Merlot!"
Morgan says the innovative design features PET plastic bottle technology that preserves the quality of the wine.
The unique combination of the plastic bottle and drinking vessel was developed in New Zealand. Morgan owns the rights for distribution in the United States.
The wines sell for $10 at the ballpark.
Joe Morgan's statue outside the ballpark will be dedicated Sept. 7.
