I ventured to Orlando last month for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. I met many wine fans from around the nation following the seminars where we presented three of our wines to a thirsty crowd. While there was a small glitch at the beginning of the first seminar (I was given the wrong time and was ‘on’ 2 hours earlier than expected) it forced me to get with the program quickly. And I was thankful my husband Ed was a co-speaker-it showed how 25 years of marriage, 12 of them working together at the winery, can help us deliver the Pedroncelli message on the fly. We walked the groups through the seasons at the winery and highlighted how three generations of the family have worked together to make our wines accessible, great values and approachable. Pedroncelli is Italian for ‘overdeliver’ after all. I shared my VIMD story and asked the group to think of the first time they became passionate about wine-their first sip of homemade wine, Chardonnay or Champagne. Wine is a great conversation starter whether you are around the dining room table or on the patio. Start one today about when and where you tasted your first sip in the comments below!
