Elevate The Tailgate with Santa Rita®

MIAMI, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading Chilean winemaker Santa Rita is proud to partner with both the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans football teams for the 2013-2014 season.  Selected as a Preferred Partner of both the Miami Dolphins and the Houston Texans, this celebrated Chilean winery will ride along every step of the way as these two esteemed teams battle for victory.  From around the nation to Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Reliant Stadium in Houston and back to the comfort of home, Santa Rita wines will be there to elevate the tailgate experience. 

"We are very proud to support the Miami Dolphins and the Houston Texans by becoming their wine partner, and we are confident that our exceptional flavors will elevate the tailgate of football fans everywhere throughout the season," said Michael Preis, Vice President of Marketing at Palm Bay International, Santa Rita's US importer.  The partnership between Santa Rita and the two teams marks the first time a South American brand has worked hand-in-hand with professional football teams in the United States.  These partnerships also bring 130 years of illustrious winemaking to both Sun Life Stadium and Reliant Stadium, with special offers taking place throughout the seasons. 

Santa Rita is also partnering with renowned South Florida-based spice producer Badia to push the excitement of all football fans to new heights through the time-honored tradition of tailgating.  Badia is the world's leading Hispanic-owned Spice company, and for more than 46 years, Badia has brought to market the best ingredients from all around the world. The new Santa Rita partnership reaffirms Badia's dedication to the soul of cooking.  Taking the pigskin party to the next level, Santa Rita's quintessential Chilean wines, such as the 120 range, have what it takes to pair perfectly with a number of unique Badia-seasoned tailgating treats.  Pre-game at the stadium or at home with spicy jerk chicken and citrusy Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc, robust bean dip and bold Santa Rita 120 Carmenere, or creamy apple chicken salad and crisp Santa Rita 120 Chardonnay.  No matter how you pair it, a tailgate with the Santa Rita wines and Badia seasonings is always the right call.

With a past as bold and sublime as its wines, Santa Rita looks towards the future with the confidence of pure success and global recognition.
