Photo: Pop’s Rock & Hammer wine makes appearance at Tux & Tennies

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich once said he tends to spend time at his wine cellar at his home especially after losses. This past weekend, at the Annual Tux & Tennies gala, it appears some of Popovich's limited edition Rock & Hammer pinot noir was enjoyed by attendees.

The wine, named after the famous Jacob Riis quote hanging in the Spurs locker room, is part of the Oregon-based A to Z Wineworks Popovich is part owner of. A to Z also produces Popovich's Silver Black, a red wine.

While Spurs fans will hope Popovich won't have to make too many trips out to his wine cellar for the remainder of this season, Pop does seem to be building quite the wine collection over at A to Z. I'm thinking another red wine named after Matt Bonner could be his next hit.
