Mid-Week Wine Happenings!

Our journey takes us down a new wine path this week. If you were able to attend the American Fine Wine Competition (AFWC) last Saturday in West Palm Beach, I'm sure you enjoyed it. I certainly did.
Those are the type of events we strive to bring to you, our loyal readers.

Here Are Your Mid-Week Wine Happenings:

-------------------------------------------Boca Bacchanal This Upcoming Weekend!
Here's Some Information Detailing This Great Event:

The Boca Bacchanal Committee has announced the pairings of the Vintner Dinner Chefs and Vintners, who will be coming to the event for this weekend's (March 19th- 21st)winefest and auction. This is the eighth edition of the popular food and wine weekend, which benefits the Historic Preservation and Heritage Education Programs of the Boca Raton Historical Society.
The three-day affair will feature the Friday evening Vintner Dinners and a Sunday alfresco Grand Tasting, as well as a Wine Seminar, at Mizner Park Amphitheatre.
