Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz uncorked

After yesterday’s day game vs. the Angels, Red Sox starters Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz launched their new charity wines at the House of Blues’ Foundation Room across from Fenway Park.

Buchholz debuted his ChardonClay, a Chardonnay, while Lester introduced his CabernAce, a Cabernet. NESN Red Sox reporter Heidi Watney was the emcee of the event.

The Longball Cellars wines are produced by the Selby Winery located in Healdsburg, California. Both wines are expected to retail for about $14 a bottle once they hit retail stores later this May across New England. For wine connoisseurs and Red Sox fans out of region, the wines can be purchased online at 100 percent of athlete proceeds will support the Jimmy Fund and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.


In the video above, Lester and Buchholz speak about the wines, being new fathers, and the start of the 2011 baseball season.
