For New York locals and Mets fans eagerly awaiting the start of baseball season, there’s a new addition to the roster at Citi Field. International wine portfolio Tussock Jumper is proud to announce that they are now an ‘Official Partner of the New York Mets’ through 2020.
Imported into the United States by Tri-Vin Imports, ballpark guests will now enjoy quality wine varietals from around the world at each Mets home game, enjoying Tussock Jumper wines with ballpark dishes through their by-the-glass offerings.
This partnership also comes as the Mets roll out a carafe program, allowing guests to decant and share a bottle of wine right at their seats. “We look forward to working with Tussock Jumper Wines, introducing their new wines and wine regions to our fans at Citi Field this season,” said Chris Zaber, Senior Vice President, Corporate Partnerships and Ticketing Sales.
Tussock Jumper wines selected for the menu at Citi Field include a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, an Italian Pinot Grigio and Prosecco, a Pinot Noir from Southern France, and an organic Malbec from Argentina. A new single serve line is planned for later this spring.
“We are truly honored to be partnering with the New York Mets,” said John Oliveira, co-founder of Tussock Jumper Wines and owner of Tri-Vin Imports. “It’s our hope that ballpark guests will have fun exploring new wines, and tasting new winemaking regions. Americans are growing in their appreciation for wine, and it’s our goal with Tussock Jumper to make the discovery process easier.”
In addition to live promotions, giveaways, and social media collaborations, Tussock Jumper will also be partnering with the MLB for an exclusive Mets’ fans VIP sweepstakes to be announced after the season opens.
