If Amare Stoudemire, who recently signed with the Heat, wants to continue taking those baths in red wine — and why in the world would he not? — he won’t have far to look for a supplier. As it happens, new teammate Dwyane Wade just launched his own label.
The Miami shooting guard, who’s of a certain vintage in his own right (33 years old), posted a photo to Instagram showing several wine bottles with “Wade” on their labels, along with this caption:
“Last night i finished the first part of my China tour..which was me launching my very first Wade Wine..Both Shanghai & Beijing events was great and we are looking forward to more in the future.”
It is unclear if the wine will only be available in China. In the meantime, as Sports Illustrated pointed out, we’re left to wonder if “Wade” was in those glasses that the Heat star, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul famously clinked in a recent photo.
It’s a savvy move by Wade, who probably doesn’t have too many dunks left in his arsenal, to find another signature item to uncork every now and then.
