Inaugural Release Countdown!
Bold Stripes Club
A Bengal tiger is fierce.
It has a striking, unforgettable appearance thanks to its bold stripes.
Being Bold means taking chances, pushing the boundaries and being willing to go where you have never been.
Boldness runs rich through Bengals history: 1968 saw our first season taking a chance on Cincinnati and Paul Brown’s return to Pro Football. 1981 introduced the iconic striped helmets that saw the team rise to the occasion of this statement-look taking us to our first Super Bowl.
Today, Coach Taylor, Joe Burrow and the squad confidently lead our team to new stories and milestones.
Bold Stripes Wine Club offers a unique opportunity to celebrate our past, present and future together with family and friends as one connected team.
Please join us. Who Dey!
INTRODUCING The Bold Stripes Collection to be released on October 29, 2022. The Second release of wines will be around the 2023 NFL Draft.
Bengals’ founder and Hall of Fame coach, Paul Brown, was a teacher at heart. He brought football to the classroom with playbooks and lessons from the chalkboard. We took Brown’s approach of strategic and thorough preparation – that is core to the Bengals and every NFL team still to this day – to handcraft this championship-caliber red wine.
We introduce you to Playbook. This proprietary red blend – from our award-winning winemaker Todd Heth – exhibits dark blackberry, bing cherry, and plum notes perfectly into layers of coffee and tobacco. The finish is dry with long-lasting berry fruit. Silky but firm tannins, this wine is enjoyable now but has the ability to age well in the cellar.
A white Bengal is rare. Its eyes capture the confidence that runs through our team’s veins. Celebrate the birth of our new, clean White Bengal helmet with the crisp, refreshing glass of White Bengal Chardonnay.
We introduce you to White Bengal. Hailing from the cool and foggy climate for the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County, this beautiful medium-bodied wine was grown slowly to build intense flavors over time. This wine was aged in French oak and displays a beautiful balance of fruit, oak and liveliness on the palate and exhibits lush mango and toasted almond. Balanced fruit with tarte acidity makes this wine a classic example of Premium Russian River Chardonnay.
Touchdown Bengals! Fans have been singing The Bengals Growl fight song since the team’s first season in 1968. One phrase – “offensive brute” – perfectly represents our team’s history of legendary quarterbacks, elite wide receivers, and other offensive greats. Run, pass, or boot … no matter how we have scored, cheers to victory and win a game for Cincinnati!
We introduce you to Offensive Brut. This premium sparkling wine – meticulously and artfully made in the traditional champagne method – rivals anything found from the best Champagne houses in Épernay and Reims. Blended superbly from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this magnificent Napa Valley Brut exhibits rich fruit aromatics of strawberry and delicate white cherry that follows through to a creamy mid-palate accompanied with highlights of lime and wet minerality and a lingering vibrant finish.

Hear About Bold Stripes
“I am proud to be part of the historic Bengals franchise and to call Cincinnati home. Football and wine are two experiences that bring people together. Bold Stripes Napa Valley wines pay tribute to my great grandfather and the everlasting impact he had on the game of football while creating a new opportunity for fans, family and partners to celebrate the Bengals today and into the future.”
“It is an honor to be working with the ownership of the Bengals to bring Bold Stripes Napa Valley to the Queen City. These special wines are handcrafted with the same level of precision, tenacity, excellence and attention to detail that Paul Brown approached the game we all love.”
