PITTSBURGH, July 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board today announced that Jesse Bongiovi will sign purchased bottles of Diving Into Hampton Water wine at 6:00 PM Wednesday, Aug. 1, at Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection, 5956 Centre Ave., Pittsburgh.

Jesse Bongiovi is a recent graduate of the University of Notre Dame, where he received a degree in political science with a minor in business economics. A New Jersey native, Jesse spent nearly every summer of his youth vacationing with his family in East Hampton, New York. His lifelong affection for the Hamptons is what motivated him to create Diving Into Hampton Water. Jesse is the son of Rock-n-Roll Hall-of-Famer Jon Bon Jovi, who played a key role in the creation of this wine. Jesse and Jon collaborated with French winemaker Gérard Bertrand, and the wine is produced in France's southern Languedoc-Roussillon region.
