St. Helena, CA (PRWEB) September 03, 2014
Trinchero Family Estates (“TFE”) today announced a collaboration with golfer Emily Talley to be the Bandit wines Brand Ambassador at numerous golf tournaments and events during the next year including the Symetra Tour and the Golf Channel’s Big Break Invitational.
Fittingly, Emily grew up in the heart of wine country in Napa, CA until she moved to Colorado to attend the University of Colorado (“CU”) on a golfing scholarship. In 2012 she was named CU Athlete of the Year and awarded the CU Career Athletic Achievement Award. After graduation, Emily turned professional at the qualifier for the LPGA Canadian Open. She then gained her full card on the 2013 Symetra Tour and competed in 13 tournaments throughout the season. Emily is excited to continue competing for the remainder of the 2014 season and is hoping to become a LPGA Rookie in 2015. Since going pro, she has been splitting her time between California and Colorado in the offseason training at Napa’s Silverado Resort, Napa Valley Country Club, and CU in Boulder. Emily is planning to return to Northern California full-time this fall. For more information on Emily visit http://emilytalley.com.
“Emily is the perfect pairing for Bandit as she is big fan of the brand, and as a Napa native, our community is a big fan of Emily,” commented Bandit’s senior marketing manager, John Garaventa, “As the cool and convenient package says, Bandit wines are always “good to go!” on or off the golf course, as they are lightweight, portable, and environmentally friendly.”
Emily added, "I am so excited to be partnering up with TFE and Bandit wines. It is so special to be joining forces with a company from my hometown and I will do my best to make TFE and Bandit proud!"

Available in both 1 Liter (SRP $8.99) and 500 mL (SRP $4.99) sizes, Bandit can go just about anywhere – anytime of year. Bandit’s quality goes far beyond the package, made from premium grapes sourced from some of California’s best wine-growing regions, including Monterey and Napa.
