Drink Up Miami!


With summer just around the corner, what better way to imagine sunny days than to spend them in Miami? Let’s make that experience even better by adding a glass of vino to the picture. Miami may be no New York City, but it shares a similar city vibe, with the back drop of a warm paradise. This gives locals and tourists a great excuse to enjoy the savory wine culture Miami has to offer.

Miami International Wine Festival

Alright, so you may have to wait a little after the summertime to enjoy the Miami International Wine Festival, but we promise it’s worth the wait. The event started to inspire Americans to enjoy wine, since national intake is lower than some European countries. Spend the weekend enjoying and understanding what fine wine is in the United States. And what is a wine festival without the opportunity to sample a few glasses? You’ll get the opportunity to enjoy wine tastings from a variety of wine samples, from all around the world.
South Beach Wine and Food Festival
If you didn’t know already, South Beach is the place to be in Miami. This swanky little city within a city is full of posh presence, and it’s no wonder why it has its own Wine Festival. This four-day star-studded event showcases the world’s best wine and spirits producers. It also features renowned chefs and culinary masters. Join over 50,000 guests at 50 events taking place over the course of the weekend; all here for the same reason- to enjoy quality wine and pairings. The event goes right back to the community; benefitting the Florida International University’s School of Hospitality and Tourism Management. Look at that- you’ll be drinking for a great cause!
Find the World’s Most Expensive Wine: The Penfolds Ampoule
When you become a wine connoisseur, there is no price too big for a top quality bottle of wine. What if that bottle is worth $168,000? The Limited Edition The Penfolds Ampoule is a cross between wine and fine art. Made in a hand-blown glass bottle and placed in a wooden casket, it is the most expensive wine in the world. This rare single vineyard wine hails from Australia and made its trip to Star Liquor in Wellington, FL- a bit North East from Miami.  Take a chance to catch a glimpse of this rare wine; since only 12 bottles were made and this is the only one in the United States.
