Drew Bledsoe has a new job, and it helped him gain a new fan.
The former New England Patriots quarterback returned to his roots after football and now produces wine in his native Walla Walla, Wash. Bledsoe’s Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon has received rave reviews from publications like Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast and was featured on ESPN’s “Monday Night Countdown” in a segment with Rick Reilly.
The segment caught the attention of Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, who took to Twitter to request a bottle.
Hey Drew Bledsoe just saw your special with Rick Reilly. I wanna try your wine out as well. Looks great! Can u ship to Ohio?—

It probably would have been more efficient for James to actually mention Bledsoe’s Twitter handle, but we have a funny feeling his message will find its way to the Pats Hall of Famer.
