Blog: Olly WehringConcha y Toro and Manchester United's wine aficionado

Olly Wehring | 18 May 2010

You may have seen today (18 May) that Concha y Toro is to become the official wine of Manchester United football club later this year.

The Red Devil's manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, is known to be quite a wine buff, regularly sharing a post-match bottle with his opposing managers in his office.

“I'm delighted to be working with Concha y Toro,” he said today. “Like United, it's a company with a lot of history that, while never afraid to change, has always kept hold of its roots. This is a partnership that unites the two great passions in Latin America: football and wine. I'm looking forward to it.”

What other managers might say if Ferguson produces a bottle of Concha y Toro after the match, unfortunately, was not reported.
