ARDMORE, Pa., April 26, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board announced that winemaker Filippo Zardetto will host a special tasting and sign bottles of his family's prosecco at Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection in the Ardmore Plaza Shopping Center, 62 Greenfield Ave., Montgomery County, on Sunday, April 29, from noon to 2:00 PM.
Filippo Zardetto comes from a long, proud, and accomplished line of winemakers. Filippo's great-great grandfathers were award-winning winemakers, and it was his grandfather who founded the Zardetto winery and began to produce prosecco back in 1969. In 1982, Filippo's father Fabio joined the company and now, 35 years later, Zardetto Prosecco, once only known in Milan, Bologna, and Rome, can be enjoyed in cities around the world. After graduating with honors from Venice Business School, Filippo became involved in marketing and sales at Zardetto.
Filippo will offer samples of Zardetto Prosecco Brut ($14.99) to those 21 years of age and older. He will also sign pre-purchased bottles, answer customers' questions, and share stories, history, and interesting facts about his company.
