WMMR’s Pierre Robert & Chaddsford Winery Team up for “Pierreno Grigio”

Posted on Wednesday, March 12, 2008



On April 9, vintage wine will meet vintage vinyl when Chaddsford Winery introduces their 2006 Pinot Grigio, named for WMMR radio personality and longtime Philadelphian Pierre Robert.

Pierreno Grigio will flow at several local watering holes throughout the spring and early summer, including wine dinners at:

April 23 Kildare’s (826 DeKalb Pike, King of Prussia 610-337-4772)

April 29 Gypsy Saloon (128 Ford Street, West Conshohocken 610-828-8494)

May 13 Horizons (611 S. 7th Street, 215-923-6117)

May 20 The Gables in (423 Baltimore Pike, Chadds Ford 610-388-7700)

June 2 White Dog Café (3420 Sansom Street, 215-386-9224)

June 12 The Moshulu (401 S. Columbus Boulevard, 215-923-2500)

June 25 Valanni (1229 Spruce Street, 215-790-9494)

The dinners will include half-hour meet-and-greet sessions with Robert, and some will feature special prix-fixe vegetarian menus to celebrate Robert’s own gastronomic preferences.

In addition, one lucky winner at each restaurant (chosen in a contest on WMMR) and their guest will join Robert at his table for the meal. Restaurants hosting dinners will include Pierreno Grigio on their wine lists before and following those dates, for patrons unable to attend the event.

Pierreno Grigio will also be available at Chaddsford Winery and its three sales locations, Peddler’s Village (Street Road and Route 202 in New Hope), Springfield Mall Wine Shop (Baltimore Pike and West Sproul Road in Springfield), and the Ardmore Farmer’s Market (Coulter Avenue and St. James Place in Ardmore), as well as through their website.
