Taste of the NFL’s Party with a Purpose event has become a “must-attend” for those attending the Super Bowl, with well-known chefs from each NFL city creating signature dishes paired with wines from Gallo’s acclaimed fine wine portfolio. This year, guests will enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to mingle with high-profile football greats, top chefs and celebrities during a night of food, wine, football and goodwill taking place at San Francisco’s legendary Cow Palace.

“Our family and our winery are so honored to once again partner with Taste of the NFL on this worthy cause,” said TNFL board member and third-generation winemaker Gina Gallo. “Families face hunger each and every day, and it’s so imperative that we continue doing what we can to assist those in need.”

In the months leading up to the star-studded event, Gallo’s wine-by-the-glass program, now in its twelfth year, donates proceeds from the sale of select Gallo wines. Restaurant patrons across the country who enjoy a glass of wine from Gallo’s Premium portfolio including Gallo Signature Series, William Hill Estate Winery, Louis M. Martini Winery and MacMurray Estate Vineyards during September, October and November are helping contribute much-needed funds to support America’s hungry.

“Taste of the NFL is so fortunate to have such wonderful, long-term partners in Gina Gallo and the Gallo family, as we work together to provide families across the country with two essential things – food and hope,” said Wayne Kostroski, Taste of the NFL Founder.

Tickets to Taste of the NFL can be purchased at http://www.tasteofthenfl.com. Individual tickets to the event are available for $700, and VIP experience packages are $10,000 and accommodate a party of 10 people.
