Main image

Super Bowl Champion and NFL Veteran Will Blackmon played 12 seasons in the NFL. He played for the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars and finished his playing career with the Washington Redskins.

Having always had a passion for wine, when Will retired from football, he wanted to learn more, studying for his WSET Level 2 and 3 Awards in Wines and the Court of Master Sommeliers introductory certificate.

Now often referred to as the "NFL wine guy", Will founded a VIP wine concierge service, "The Wine MVP".

We asked Will what inspired his passion for wine, what advice he'd give to anyone else changing careers, and what tips he'd share with anyone studying on a WSET course.

Are you ready to step up your skills to the next level? The Level 3 Award in Wines provides a detailed understanding of grape growing and winemaking. Tap here to find out more.
