In the later years of his career, the basketball star has established himself as more than a future Hall of Famer. Over the past 15 years, Carmelo Anthony has been exploring wine, developing a passion for Burgundy and sharing wine and knowledge with fellow players at home and while on the road. Now he's reaching an even wider audience with his wine-themed YouTube series, What’s in Your Glass?, featuring stars like Venus Williams, Jamie Foxx and Patti Labelle and using wine as a vehicle to break barriers for discussing tough social issues.
In this profile, "Melo" talks sport, his wine journey from novice to serious collector and how he's helping spread the wine gospel across basketball to inspire a new generation of drinkers.
