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.

About the Houston Texans

The Texans play at Reliant Stadium, the first retractable-roof stadium in the NFL, and home to the largest in-stadium HD video displays in the world. The Texans have sold out every game at the stadium in franchise history. The Houston Texans are the two-time defending AFC South division champions; and in 2013, the Texans were named the 13th most valuable sports franchise in the world and the 5th most valuable NFL franchise by Forbes magazine with an estimated value of $1.3 billion.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
