Ski Sundown in New Hartford hosted Vitone Family Wines for a wine tasting on March 19, 2015 in its Last Chair Tavern. The “Après-ski Warm Up to Wine Tasting” event featured four handcrafted wines: Verde Sole Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Vitone Family Wines Founder and CEO, Christian Vitone, gave a wine talk and mingled with guests afterward. Vitone Family Wines was founded in 2010 by Vitone, an Avon, Conn. native who acquired an appreciation for viniculture at the age of 14, making wine with his grandfather, a WWI Italian Army veteran, Avon resident, and mutual fan of the 1920’s Art Deco style symbolized on the Verde Sole labels.
