On May 16 from 4-7pm Poggi Bonsi will host a reception featuring Italian food and wine.
“Poggi Bonsi is honored to serve as the Commission’s representative in this nationwide promotion. We have been importing Italian products since 2001 and we’re delighted to have been selected to participate in this event.” said Keli DeRitis, co-owner. “We are excited for this opportunity to share traditional craftsmanship and Italian hospitality with our customers.” adds business partner, Michelle Codd.
The Italian Trade Commission works to increase awareness of Italian-made products around the world. In this campaign, shops in smaller yet strategic American cities were chosen to bring the “Made in Italy” brand to new customers and to help increase awareness of Italian quality and design. More than 50 Italian companies will participate in this national promotion. Renton is the only venue represented for this pormotion in the Pacific Northwest.
