Mike Zygmonski, the wine director for SoDel Concepts, was invited to attend Full Circle BevCon 2017, an industry event with more than 15 master classes and tastings from producers around the world.
Sponsored by Full Circle Wine Solutions, the event is scheduled for Tuesday-Thursday, Sept. 5-7, at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco. This is the third year for the conference, which will feature Master Sommeliers Evan Goldstein and Keith Goldston, as well as Master Sommelier and Master of Wine Doug Frost. Zygmonski is one of only 50 VIP guests invited to attend.
Zygmonski is a certified sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers. "Mike has really made a name for himself in the wine world in our region," said Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts. "His passion and dedication have clearly caught the eye of some of the best in the business. It's a testament to his knowledge that he's been invited to attend this event."
Zygmonski, a Lewes native, spent three years working in New York restaurants, including Eataly. Under his direction, Lupo Italian Kitchen in Rehoboth Beach received a 2017 Wine Spectator Award for its all-Italian wine list.
"It is an honor to be invited to such a prestigious event in San Francisco," said Zygmonski. "Evan Goldstein called me himself to extend the invitation. That means a lot to me and to our company."
