“There is a passion that racing and winemaking share, you have to be obsessive in both to be successful. Many racers have owned wineries, there is something about balancing the intensity of racing with the serenity of farming. Wine has always been given to the race winners since the beginning of auto racing in fact the first sanctioned automobile race, the Paris-Bordeaux-Paris rally raced through the famed wine region of France. In 1932, the French Grand Prix was first hosted at Reims-Gueux, the track was made up of rural public roads in France’s Champagne region and the race was used as a promotion for the wine of the region, Champagne. Fast forward to when Dan Gurney famously sprayed Champagne (which is a wine) ​​after winning 1967 Le Mans 24 hours. It cemented  Champagne into the culture of racing permanently. The Doffo winery is an amazing experience if you love wine and motorcycles, you have to stop by and do a tasting,” stated Unlimited Off-Road Racing CEO Matt Martelli.
