TOPEKA, Kan. (Feb. 27, 2019) – Mazza Vineyards will again partner with the Sports Car Club of America® in 2019 as the “Official Sparkling Wine” of the Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA® Super Tour, Tire Rack SCCA ProSolo® and the SCCA National Championship Runoffs®. Podium finishers at each of those events will be awarded a bottle of Mazza sparkling wine with a custom label commemorating the achievement.
Mazza Vineyards was founded in 1973 by Bob and Frank Mazza. Since then, the vineyard gained prominence, counting several awards to its credit. Located in North East, Pennsylvania, Bob has served in an official role to help further the needs of wine makers in Pennsylvania. The flagship vineyard is also part of Lake Erie Wine Country and the Pennsylvania Winery Association. The company has grown to the point where the Mazza family has moved into producing other high-end spirits and beers. Mazza Vineyards is the family’s flagship brand, while Mazza Chautauqua Cellars and Five & 20 Spirits and Brewing are newer, New York state-based brands.
“It’s been wonderful watching SCCA competitors celebrate podium finishes with Mazza Sparkling Wine over the last couple years,” said Bob Mazza, founder and principal at Mazza Vineyards. “I’ve been racing since the early 1990s and even managed to claim a U.S. Majors Tour® class win. I know what it means to come home a winner and proud that Mazza Vineyards can help commemorate the achievement at Hoosier Super Tour and Tire Rack ProSolo events, as well as the 2019 National Championship Runoffs taking place at VIRginia International Raceway.”
Deanna Flanagan, SCCA Director of Road Racing, is pleased to once again have Mazza Vineyards aboard since the company’s sparkling wine plays an important part at SCCA victory podium ceremonies.
“The customized Mazza Sparking Wine bottle is another keepsake each driver can save to mark his or her achievement and success,” Flanagan noted. “Plus, Mazza Vineyards is helping to continue the celebratory tradition established by the great Dan Gurney of spraying a bottle of bubbly atop the podium.”
