Rico was visiting Zion, UT and Avon/Beavercreek, CO (May 29 - June 7) ahead of the Napa/Sonoma Press tour as a preview launch. I was able to get in some great wine and food and meet some great GMs and Chefs.
Taste of Wine and Food's, Rico Cassoni, was at Sea Salt Del Mar's Prisoner Wine Company (PWC) Wine Pairing Dinner, Saturday 4/28. Sea Salt Owner Sal Ercolano (right) boldly went where no other has gone before with three consecutive SOLD OUT nights for a wine dinner and kidded that he was even thinking of a fourth evening. Also pictured is Southern Wine Distributor Alex Hare (left) educating guests on the PWC delicious wines, crafted by winemaker Chrissy Whitmann, including Derange being held.
