The DD Project and Elena Delle Donne collaboration is different. Elena shares a deep passion for high quality wine and a particular fondness for the Pinot Noir of Oregon and its famed Willamette Valley. This wine was hand selected by Elena to serve as her first signature wine. All proceeds from the sale of this wine will go equally to the Elena Delle Donne Foundation and the DD Entrepreneurial Foundation.
This Willamette Pinot immediately hits with notes of fresh blueberry, cola, and baking spice. Vibrant but balanced on the palate, you will immediately notice a presence of candied fruit (notably Cherry) and sweet tobacco. A chef’s wine that will pair with many dishes but also great for solo endeavors.
