Last night Manny Ferrero the Senior VP of Ashton sales passed away, apparently of a heart attack while at the TAA convention in Cabo . He died in style, on the dance floor. Manny was known to be fiery, emotional, and passionate. He was a sharp dresser, articulate, and knew how to light up a room. He loved to innovate, when he was not satisfied with traditional events he created pairings. Hosting events which highlighted the ability of anything from lemonade to port to pair with cigars.
