Lorraine Bracco, actress and proprietor of Bracco Wines in Center City, Philadelphia Friday 5 – 7PM

Lorraine Bracco, actress and proprietor of Bracco Wines, will pour four Italian wines for tasting and sign bottles for customers from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 19, at the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board Premium Collection Wine & Spirits store, 1218 Chestnut St., Philadelphia.

Bracco, best known for her portrayal of Dr. Jennifer Melfi on the HBO series, “The Sopranos,” two years ago launched Bracco Wines, which selects and imports vintages from acclaimed wine regions across Italy. UPDATE OF THE SIGNING: I don’t know if Dr. Melfi was surprised about the amazing turnout of press to cover her at the signing, or by this guys flash umbrella that was more than adequate to cover anyone in a rainstorm, and quite often blocked my shots, but check out the shot of Lorraine when she first eyes the crowd. It’s a keeper…
Always the professional Lorraine Bracco poses for the press holding her signature wine. I really should have bought one, I think it would make a great gift.It was just about a year ago from today that I saw Lorraine Bracco ride a segway at the DGA awards and fall on her arse and then 18 months ago when I saw her at a Soprano event where she refused to pose for me. What a difference a year and a City make. Sure she is hawking something, but I find that celebrities are just a little more friendly when they come to Philadelphia. Check out these incidences at and do a search on Bracco or Soprano. And remember to visit my sponser Nirmada to see great interior designs: MY ONE AND ONLY SPONSOR
