Coach Ditka Wine

Hall of Fame player and coach Mike Ditka has partnered with the Mendocino Wine Company to produce a line of wines to be sold in his Mike Ditka's Restaurants as well as online. Da Coach is also planning to open one of his restaurants in Las Vegas in the near future with other hopeful new restaurant locations include Phoenix and Scottsdale Arizona.

His current fleet of wines include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Grigio and Kick Ass Red - which was designed to pair with his most popular menu item the Kick Ass pork Chop he has been serving in Chicago for many years.

Looking on the MWC website, his wines are listed at the following price:

2004 Mike Ditka Merlot - $11.99
2006 Mike Ditka Pinot Grigio - $11.99
2004 Mike Ditka Cabernet Sauvignon - $19.99
2005 Mike Ditka Chardonnay - $17.99
2004 Kick Ass Red - $49.99

For 50 bucks, it better Kick Ass! Next time I am in Chicago, I'll try to stop in and get the Kick Ass Chop / Kick Ass Red combo platter.
