Foyt Wine Down Party Kicks of IndyCar Weekend at Sonoma
SONOMA, Calif. Aug. 22–The race weekend got off to a festive start as the 5th Annual Foyt Wine Down party was held last evening at Meadowcroft Tasting Room just minutes away from Sonoma Raceway. Friends of Foyt Family Wines along with the AJ Foyt Racing team sponsors and crew members, attended the affair which featured seven different Foyt wines including the No. 61 Pinot Noir, the No. 67 Chardonnay, and the Double Gold winning No. 77 Cabernet Sauvignon.
Guests of ABC Supply and Alfe Heat Treating met winemaker Tom Meadowcroft, racing drivers Takuma Sato and Martin Plowman along with A.J. Foyt. The guests were also able to sign up to become a member of Club Foyt and receive Foyt wine shipments throughout the year.
Topping off the night, Larry Foyt answered an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and was doused with ice water but not before he mentioned that Foyt Wines would donate $1,000 to ALSA.org. Foyt then nominated the band Chevelle, A.J. Foyt IV, and to everyone’s surprise, his dad A.J. Foyt. Check out Larry Foyt’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
The jury’s still out as to whether the family patriarch will accept the challenge or simply donate money and avoid the ice water. Either way, ALSA.org will benefit.
