AUGUSTA, Mo. (KMOX) - Have you ever watched a wild championship celebration and wondered where all of those bottles of champagne came from?

Fifteen cases of “Ten Bucks Sweet Spumanti” produced by Mt. Pleasant Winery in Augusta will be on stand-by tonight if, that is, when — the Cardinals clinch their series against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Winery president Chuck Dressel is supplying the “bubbly” free-of-charge.

He says people ask him if he finds it insulting that most of his champagne ends up in people’s hair rather than in their mouths. But the answer is no. “For us it’s a great way for us to be part of the celebration.”

If, somehow, the Cardinals don’t win tonight the champagne will be wheeled over to the Pirates locker room, but Dressel says they’ll have to pay for it.
