South Florida Weekend Wine Happenings!

Ahhh...The spring arrives. The trees are beginning to bloom, the frost is melting from the vines, and the South Florida weather is still chilly...
I know. I know. We're all wondering when this chill will go away. But since you have to stick through it might as well enjoy it with a vino.

South Florida, Here Are Your Weekend Wine Happenings:
