By May 3, 2014Connecticut, Top News

Kathie Lee Gifford and Frank Gifford signed bottles and met fans at BevMax Liquors in Stamford on March 28, 2014. Gifft Wines is a partnership between three-time Emmy award winning television personality Kathie Lee Gifford and Scheid Family Wines of Monterey, California. They are producing two wines — a 2012 Chardonnay and a 2011 Red Blend. Gifford said of the line, “It’s well-documented that I’m a wine lover so when I started talking to the Scheid family about making a wine, it felt like the most natural thing in the world.”
