Yanks and Mets battle it out with wine for charity

Remember how Yankees and Mets players were doing their part for charity with themed wines? I squawked about it back in the spring (click the Longball Cellars site here to read more about the wines.) There were five wines available:

  • Johan Santana’s “Santana’s Select Merlot”
  • Jorge Posada’s “Jorge Cabernet”
  • Bobby Abreu’s “Abreu’s Finest Merlot”
  • Jose Reyes’ “CaberReyes”
  • Brian Schneider’s “Schneider Schardonnay”

Jean’s Fine Wines and Spirits (click here to see their web site) ran a contest this summer over which team would sell more wines, the Yankees or the Mets. And after hundreds of fans got involved with supporting their team, the Met fans won, and the store decorated their outside display this summer in honor of the guys from Flushing.

But the fun isn’t over. The Staten Island wine store still has a few bottles of the Longball Cellars wines left. And if you go to the store, and tell them Subway Squawkers referred you, you’ll get $3 off your charity wine purchase, and help some very worthwhile causes in the process.

Jean’s Fine Wines and Spirits is located at 642 Forest Avenue, Staten Island, New York. Phone number is (866) 258-7609. Just wanted to pass this deal on to our readers.
