Go Blackhawks!

So how did Tom Sr. end up with a Blackhawks jersey with his last name on it?

It’s actually an interesting story.

It all started with Wirtz Beverage Group. We have a long standing relationship with them because they represent our brand in Nevada, Illinois and Wisconsin. It turns out that Rocky Wirtz and the Wirtz family (who own Wirtz Beverage Group) also own the Chicago Blackhawks NHL team. The Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup Championship in the 2009-2010 season.

The Wirtz Family thought it would be great to make a “Leonardini” Blackhawk jersey to represent the successful ongoing relationship between our two companies and families.

Here’s to a great Blackhawks NHL season and Whitehall Lane Winery Harvest!
