Miami: Wine & Food & Food & Wine = Bliss

Post on April 17, 2015 by The Victoria Law Group 0 Comments

Without question, this is the best time of year to live in South Florida.  Saturday, February 26, 2011, was a quintessential South Florida Day.

 

The weather was perfect, the Heat v. the Knicks brought in almost as many “stars” as the Oscars, and the South Beach Food and Wine Festival was in splendid glory.

The Festival’s culinary stars are so famous they need only first names — Emeril, Rachael, Bobby, Jamie, Ming, Giada.

But the “food” part, with its megastar TV chefs, tends to obscure the lesser-known winemakers and their wares, no matter how fabulous.

Can the casual wine fan even name a single winemaker — Silvio Jermann, perhaps, or Louis Fabrice Latour?

Dozens of the world’s finest wines — Tunina, Guado al Tasso, Romitorio, Badiola, Cabo de Hornos — were poured at the Festival.

They call it the South Beach Food & Wine Festival, but it could easily be the  Wine & Food Festival — in that order.

Either way, no one’s complaining.
