John Kapon, Chairman of Acker, is thrilled to have Melo be part of this exclusive event.

"As someone who has lived in New York for over forty years, as both a Syracuse and a Knicks fan, and an avid basketball lover, I’m extremely excited to have Carmelo Anthony involved in our Acker All-Stars Uncorked Series. His professional career has been exceptional and watching his next chapter unfold beyond basketball is very inspiring. Part of that chapter is the world of wine, about which he is very passionate. I’m looking forward to opening a few bottles together and discussing wine, sports, and life. The great thing about wine is it always leads to amazing conversation, and that is exactly what we will be doing next Tuesday night!" -- Chairman of Acker Wines John Kapon told NBCSNW
