David Beckham bought vineyard for Victoria for her birthday : Celebs in Napa Valley

Soccer star David Beckham and wife Victoria allegedly became devoted oenophiles while living in Spain from 2003 to 2007, when Beckham played for Real Madrid before signing with the Los Angeles Galaxy club.

Lucky for them, wine-rich Napa Valley is just a short plane ride away from L.A., where the couple has lived since 2008.

To commemorate the move, David bought his wife her very own vineyard in the region, run by a team of specialists. During a weekend trip to the winery, Becks surprised Victoria with a bottle of red with her name on the label.

At present it is thought the wine will not be made commercially available and the couple – who have employed a team to run the vineyard – will keep it for family and friends.

Other celebrity vinery owners include Sting, actor Gerard Depardieu and film director Francis Ford Coppola – who was one of the first famous people to invest in the Napa Valley.
