THE STORY

Foyt No. 1 takes its name from the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans race, which was won by A.J. Foyt and co-driver Dan Gurney in the No. 1 Ford GT40 Mark IV.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The team dominated the 24-hour race, leading all but 90 minutes. The historic triumph signified the only time that an all-American team won the international classic with an all-American designed and built car. The victory celebration was forever changed that day when Gurney sprayed the Champagne instead of drinking it. Captured on film, that gesture became a motorsports tradition which continues to this day.

THE WINE

WHAT YOU'LL TASTE

 Complex layers of Honeycrisp apple and pear mix with toasted brioche and honeycomb. A creamy and velvety palate shows stone fruits such as ripe nectarine with delicate floral notes finishing with bright acidity.
