Wine Party at the Priory

We had a great time at our August wine party.  The weather was great, and our old friend Joey DiSalvo came to talk about the 7 Collefrisio Vineyards (from Abruzzi, Italy) wines we tasted.  Joey, who also owns and operates DiSalvo's Station event space and restaurant  is a friend and colleague through the Pennsylvania Restaurant and Lodging Association, where Joey served as Chair in 2009 and I'm proud to serve as Chair this year.  Thanks to Joey and his colleague Vance Kaloz for some fantastic wines and a fun and educational night!
