Olympic figure skater Peggy Fleming celebrated her 57th birthday this year with the announcement of the release of Fleming Jenkins Victories Rosé. The wine was created by Peggy and her husband, physician and winemaker Greg Jenkins, to raise funds for breast cancer research. 100% of the net profits of this and future vintages of Victories Rosé will be donated to charities supporting the cause.
