Charles Barkley and $1,700 worth of wine and tequila
All over the news today, “Turner broadcasting wooed Charles Barkley with $1,700 of wine and tequila”. There was a chance Charles Barkley was not going to renew his contract with Turner so Turner Broadcasting System president David Levy and other Turner executives traveled to Scottsdale to visit Barkley in-person, at his home, and convince him to stay.
They brought with them, two magnums of 2009 Bond Estates St Eden Napa Valley Red and two bottles of 1942 Don Julio tequila.
Charles said, “My agent never got involved. That’s how much respect I have for David. David bought two bottles of wine, two bottles of tequila and we killed them. The money at this stage of my life does not matter. At this stage of my life, I’m not concerned about money. I shook David’s hand and said, ‘We got a deal.’ I told my agent, ‘We are not haggling or negotiating. Do the deal.’”
We have stocked the 2009 Bond Estates St. Eden Napa Valley Red and the 1942 Don Julio tequila. We don’t have them in stock at the moment however we can special order them at a very competitive price.
