Gronk Celebrates Super Bowl With $500 Wine and Fan’s Beer

Gronk Celebrates Super Bowl With $500 Wine and Fan’s Beer

An estimated 1.5 million Bostonians turned out to celebrate the Super Bowl victory at yesterday’s Patriots parade. Those that managed to get close enough to the Boylston Street procession witnessed a very familiar sight: a topless Rob Gronkowski chugging large quantities of alcohol atop a Duck Boat.

The Patriots’ tight end got the party started early on the unseasonably warm February morning with a $500 bottle of wine. According to the Boston Globe, Gronk’s tipple was a premium bottle of 2014 Hundred Acre Cabernet Sauvignon.

Based in Napa Valley’s St Helena subregion, Hundred Acre wines sell for hundreds of dollars, and Wine-Searcher lists this particular release at an average retail price of $495.

Opting for fine wine over cheap beer was somewhat out of character for Gronkowski. The six-foot, six-inch tall tight end channeled his inner Stone Cold Steve Austin to celebrate the Patriots’ 2017 Super Bowl victory, pounding Bud Light topless, two at a time.

It wasn’t long until normal service was resumed, however, and Gronk was back to doing what he does best. By midday, he had removed his Patriots fleece vest, ripped off his t-shirt, and started catching beers from the crowd (very cleanly, might we add), before chugging them.

The sight of beer splashing down Gronk’s bare torso is a familiar one for Bostonians — the Patriots have won three of the past five Super Bowls, and this is apparently how he celebrates — but this might be the last time they witness it. Rumors Gronk is set to retire are rife. One can only imagine what kind of a retirement bash that would be.
