The English national football player (with 115 games and 17 goals) David Beckham (*1975) was included in the list of the 125 best living footballers in the world by the legendary Brazilian ball magician Pelé in 2004. In 2008, on his 34th birthday, he gave his wife Victoria (*1974, née Adams) a vineyard in Napa Valley, California, for the circulated purchase price of 12 million US dollars. The business is run by experts. However, the wine produced there is not marketed, but serves only for personal use and for friends. The Beckham's thus joined the circle of many celebrities who run or have bought a winery. See also under Celebrity Wineries & Wines, as well as under Favourite Wines.
