Scaia: Buy this wine!

Kudos and many thanks to my sister, Wendy, who highly recommended this delicious dry rose' while liquor shopping for my son's bridal shower two weekends ago. Finally got around to cracking one bottle open and - oh, boy - such quality for only $13.99 (sale price).  For bonus coolness, each bottle is capped with a glass cork/stopper. Cheers!

Describing the home uniform of soccer jerseys team CD Guijuelo is easy—all green with white shorts. It is the club’s road jersey that defies traditional nomenclature.From the stands it looks it looks vaguely pink, or maybe red streaked with white. But really, the technical term for that shade would be ibérico ham. The explanation is simple: Guijuelo’s jersey is entirely covered with pictures of pork.Everyone likes to see a team take risks,” said J. David Ponce of Daen Sport, which produced the jersey.This particular risk, revealed before the start of the season in August, had the national press giggling all over it. Spanish sports daily Mundo Deportivo ranked it among the ugliest jerseys in history. Most were just confused. “The result is as unusual as it is tasty,” wrote Marca, another sports paper.In most of the soccer world, jersey colors are sacred. Dark red and blue stripes mean FC Barcelona first. All white belongs to Real Madrid, one of the most famous teams in Europe. No one has dared change those in more than half a century.But to get cheap soccer jerseys, small teams up and down Spain have become highly adventurous in their jersey design. Clubs have used broccoli, tuxedo and octopus shirts to generate attention where the players can’t.Guijuelo has a perfectly good excuse. The club’s president, Jorge Hernandez, happens to be commercial director of Beher, an award-winning producer of jamón ibérico in a corner of Spain that prides itself on its pigs.His team, which toils in Spain’s third tier of professional soccer, is more obscure. It never plays before more than a few thousand fans. So, Mr. Hernandez decided, it was time for the club to piggyback on the ham.Now the players run around the field looking like charcuterie plates with shoes. A fashion statement, Mr. Hernandez felt, to break “the monotony of traditional shirts in football.The ham jersey was inspired by the more vegetarian-friendly shirts at La Hoya Lorca CF, another club in Spain’s third tier. La Hoya Lorca hails from the agricultural region of Murcia, wholesale soccer jerseys of its directors are involved in farming broccoli. The vegetables, they say, are their identity.
