Olympic Medalist Adam Rippon Gets Big Love For Name Dropping Wine Co.

By TheBlast Staff

Adam Rippon not only just won an Olympic medal, he may have secured a big-time sponsor, too!

After helping bring home a bronze medal for Team USA in the figure skating team competition, the 28-year-old stopped by 'Good Morning America' to reveal how he planned on celebrating.

Rippon proudly said, “I’m going to go to Target and I’m going to get a bottle of Sauvignon blanc, Oyster Bay, with the twist top, immediately.”

The New Zealand based wine company tells The Blast they were thrilled to hear Adam was a fan of their wine, and that, “We’re so excited to hear he loves to ring in a victory with our Sauvignon Blanc!" They added,"Whether it’s an everyday celebration or a prestigious win, we’re grateful to be part of his special moments.”

Rippon is scheduled to compete Friday in the individual figure skating event in PyeongChang, where he has the chance to bring home the gold. If he's able to win the top honor -- you better expect ol' Oyster Bay to be supplying the skater with as many barrels of wine that he can drink.

Fun Fact: Adam was born in Scranton, PA -- which is also the location of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in "The Office."
