First of all, I would like to say thank you to all of the Twins fans. I would also like to thank the Minnesota Twins organization for giving me a chance to realize my dream of being a Major League baseball player. I was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in 1999. Since that day I have been very proud and fortunate to call myself a Minnesota Twin.
I was a wide-eyed 22 year old kid when I made my big league debut in 2003. I received a warm welcome that day and have felt welcomed ever since. I feel like I was a kid when I first got here, but was able to grow up in this organization and become someone my friends and family could be proud of.  My wife, kids and family are Minnesotans and this has become my second home. Minnesotans are some of the kindest, most genuine people I have ever met.
I am sorry that during my time here we weren’t able to achieve our ultimate goal of winning the World Series, but I will forever carry many wonderful memories of my time here. I will always cherish every day I was lucky enough to play in front of you fans in a Minnesota uniform.
Thank you for all of your support throughout the years.
Your friend,
Justin Morneau

Canadian baseball hero, Justin Morneau and wife, Krista made a surprise visit to Wayne’s winery located in Vineland, Ontario this week.  Justin and Krista visited for an hour enjoying No. 99 Estate whites and No. 99 Estate reds.  Both talked about their own private wine cellar and how they enjoyed drinking our wines with Wayne and Janet.  Justin especially appreciated the Wayne Gretzky Estate Shiraz Ice Wine.  A great ending to Justin and Krista’s visit was meeting winemaker Craig McDonald.  Click HERE to learn more about Wayne Gretzky Estate Wines.
