Pirlo owns and operates his very own family winery in Flero

New York: Italy football legend and New York City FC’s Andrea Pirlo will soon take to the pitch wearing a pair of custom-made boots that pay homage to the other love of his life: winemaking.

Having spent his childhood harvesting grapes at local vineyards in Flero, Pirlo now owns and operates his very own family winery in the region.

Just to complete the look, Pirlo's boots are shipped in a wooden crate and even have insoles made of genuine cork that read 'aged since 94' -- the year when Pirlo started his career at Brescia -- in classic black scroll.
