Paul Castronovo Bottle Signing and Wine-Tasting at Whole Foods Market - Boca Raton on Saturday, Dec 11

In Charlie's Q&A with Castronovo, he described the Italian red wine varietal, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, "as structured as a Cabernet, as elegant as a Merlot, and as gentle as a pinot noir." A bottle retails for just under $15 and is available at several South Florida restaurants and wine stores (go to castronovovineyard.com for a full listing of availability).
The bottle signing is amidst the Paul and Young Ron Morning Show's annual holiday food drive with Feeding South Florida which in past years has successfully raised over one million pounds of food for those in need. Castronovo Vineyards is one of the sponsors for two of the food drive's events -- Meatballs and Martinis and Comedy for a Cause. A few samples of the wine and a couple of chuckles with the comedic radio star should get you in the charitable spirit, so any superfluous income could be donated to the food drive by calling 877 6-HUNGER or going to feedingsouthflorida.org to contribute online.
