Only 504 cases have been produced, and Pennsylvania is proud to have purchased some of those cases for its consumers.
Ben's love of golf has allowed him to travel the world and develop a great affection for wine which he loves to share with family and friends. Now he brings that same enthusiasm and love of great wine to two of our Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores. On August 30, he will help us cut the ribbon of our newest Premium Collection in Drexel Hill, and on August 31, he will visit our Fine Wine & Good Spirits located in the Oakmont section of Pittsburgh.
