Charles Woodson
"My love of wine happened organically while being in Napa Valley during training camp while playing for the Oakland Raiders in the '90s," says Charles Woodson
 
"The way people connected with wine intrigued me and I wanted to be a part of it," Woodson says. "I created Intercept for my fans.  The fans demanded it.   They wanted more from me and I wanted to deliver.  My fans wanted to connect with me after football and wine is the great connector." 

"For both the wine business and in football, if you want longevity, you must work hard.   If you want to make a great wine that can stand the test of time, then you must put the time and the work into it,"  says Woodson.  
 
“This was even true in finding the location. After touring the Paso Robles and Monterey area, I knew I had found the right home for Intercept.  The perfect pairing, so to speak," adds Woodson.
