NEWTOWN, Pa., Dec. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Television show creators Ken Warwick and Nigel Lythgoe will help the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board celebrate the grand opening of a new Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection Store at 4:00 PM on Thursday, Dec. 7, at 212 S. State St., Newtown, Bucks County.
Warwick and Lythgoe will help cut the ribbon, then remain in the store to meet and greet fans who purchase their Fat Monk wines.
Ken Warwick and Nigel Lythgoe created and produced some of the best-known competition shows on television, including "American Idol," "So You Think You Can Dance," and "America's Got Talent." They met as schoolmates in Liverpool, England, and a friendship blossomed. Both young men loved to entertain and, as they grew into adulthood, this shared passion led to careers that often intersected, first as dancers, then as choreographers, and, finally, as producers of entertainment enjoyed by millions of people all over the world.
In 2004, a casual dinner sparked an interest in the Paso Robles (Calif.) AVA that would grow into a love affair with wine. Just one year later, they purchased a 168-acre property near San Miguel, Calif., and created Villa San-Juliette Vineyard & Winery, which produces Fat Monk wines.
Customers are advised that they must present both a bottle of Fat Monk wine and a valid receipt indicating the purchase was made at the Newtown Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection store to participate in the meet-and-greet event.
Tastings of Fat Monk wines will be held during the meet-and-greet for those 21 years of age and older, and light snacks will be available.
This Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection Store offers consumers a completely new shopping experience with an expanded floor plan, one of the largest selections of wine and spirits in the state, and a central service point with a tasting bar. It will be one of the largest branded Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores in Pennsylvania.
