Each year for the next 18 years,

 Nicklaus Wines will release a single limited-edition 1.5-liter Napa Valley red blend to celebrate each one of Nicklaus’ major championships. Produced by Terlato Wine Group, each release will be limited to 1,000 bottles and each bottle will be packaged in an individual wooden display box and accompanied by a letter from Nicklaus that includes his reflections on that major victory. The wines will be available in limited accounts internationally and online.
