Wine & dine with WMMR’s Pierre Robert…
________________________________________




Pierreno Grigio wine dinners offered at 7 area restaurants.

This April, May and June WMMR’s Pierre Robert will be wining & dining his way across the Delaware Valley with his eponymous wine, Pierreno Grigio created by Chaddsford Winery.

Pierreno Grigio wine dinners will include half-hour meet & greet sessions with the legendary DJ, and will feature special vegetarian dishes and prix-fixe menus.
*Meet & greets will be limited to people who have dinner reservations and purchase wine.

In addition, at each dinner, one lucky winner (chosen in a contest on WMMR) and their guest will join Pierre at his table for the meal. Listen to WMMR beginning April 9th for details.

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.

The bottle will bear a tie-dye label with Robert’s likeness. Winemaker Eric Miller describes the wine as “very refreshing,” with a “crisp, clean acidity; zesty, juicy fruit; and a mouth-watering, long, lively finish.” Restaurants hosting dinners will include Pierreno Grigio on their wine lists beginning this April.
