Big Time Bordeaux
with Carmelo Anthony

Tuesday, September 29 | 8:00PM ET Zoom

The second installment of our All-Stars Uncorked Series features none other than NBA legend, Carmelo Anthony! The Portland Trail Blazers’ forward has not only made a name for himself in the NBA as one of the top scorers in the league, he has also diversified himself as a family man, businessman, and philanthropist. The Carmelo Anthony Foundation was founded over 15 years ago as a vehicle for actionable change and community impact, and this summer Carmelo co-founded the Social Change Fund dedicated to investing in and supporting organizations that advocate for and champion the Black community. His authentic passion for philanthropy serves as the through line across his business empire that spans fashion, technology, content creation, and – wait for it – wine. His passion for wine even led the All-Star to start his own digital series, “What’s in Your Glass” to discuss all things vino with friends, family, experts and wine lovers around the world. Hey, we do that, too, so join us as we talk with Melo about what makes his wine o’clock tick.

Slam Dunk Syrah
With Paul Pierce

Wednesday, October 7 | 8:00PM ET Zoom

Growing up in the shadow of one of the greatest basketball arenas of the 20th century, the Los Angeles Forum, Paul Pierce always had the sport in his blood. Drafted by the Celtics straight out of college, Pierce went on to an accolade-laden career, including 10 All-Star appearances and an MVP turn in his championship winning season in 2008. Over his nearly two decades long career, he earned the nickname, “The Truth,” conveying his true ability on the court. Now he’s joining us to tell the truth about some of his favorite wines. A full-time analyst on ESPN, he is no stranger to breaking down what’s happening on the court, and we will turn that keen eye to what’s in the glass with a series of Syrahs that’s sure to bring out a crowd!

Off the Beaten Path
with Kevin Love

Tuesday, October 13 | 8:00PM ET Zoom

Over the last decade, Kevin Love has taken the league by storm. A unique superstar, Love’s career has been highlighted by five NBA All-Star elections, an NBA Championship in 2016, an Olympic gold medal in 2012, and a FIBA World Championship in 2010. He has also become an undeniable force beyond sports as he helps normalize the conversation surrounding mental health and creates an opportunity for others to do the same. After documenting his experience with depression and anxiety in a powerful personal essay on The Players’ Tribune, Love quickly evolved into the public spokesperson for mental health awareness among athletes. Continuing his advocacy in this space, he founded the Kevin Love Fund in 2018, a fund dedicated to inspiring people to live their healthiest lives while providing the tools to achieve physical and emotional well-being. Since then, Love has been awarded the ESPY Arthur Ashe Courage Award, Change Maker Award by the Child Mind Institute, the NBA Cares Assist Award, and was a ESPY Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award finalist, all due to his work in mental health awareness.
