Do soccer players like wine? The answer is “yes”, if you go by David “Bend it like” Beckham, soccer superstar. Last year he bought a vineyard for his wife, Victoria, and hired laborers to produce “Chateau Posh” wines, which are not intended for public sale, but rather for personal consumption.

Now, a new book about Beckham tells all, including the story of how Beckham got carded and was refused wine service when he failed to produce an ID.

From the article:

The Beckham Experiment,” by Sports Illustrated writer Grant Wahl, features interviews with 33-year-old Beckham and other major figures in Los Angeles Galaxy, the soccer team he joined in 2007 after a stellar career in Europe.

Anecdotes include an occasion when Beckham was denied a glass of wine because he could not produce an ID document for a U.S. waiter who did not recognize him…
