South Florida Weekend Wine Happenings!!!

Hey, thanks for visiting our blog and website. We are the GO-TO Source for wine information in South Florida. It's thanks to you we do this.

We all know that the wine world keeps changing at a rapid pace. The emergence of technology lets us access wine information anywhere and at anytime we like.
Unfortunately, many folks are still abiding by rules and other factors that will become a thing of the past.
My suggestion to those who don't "get" new media and are reluctant to "get" it:
Adapt with the times.

And as I told you earlier this week, please know that this weekend is full of exciting wine events benefiting reputable, long-standing non-profits.
If you're in the Gables area, look no further than the Coral Gables Wine And Food Festival coming this Saturday April 10th at 7:30 p.m. This event is benefiting The American Lung Association in lung research, education and patient assistance programs and The International Bronchitis Center at The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
For More Information go to http://bit.ly/bkYutB

If you're in the Miami Beach area, check out the "Merlots of The World" Wine Event benefiting the Arts For Learning Miami non-profit organization.
$10 donation per person with 100% of proceeds going to Arts For Learning Miami.
The event will be held this Saturday April 10th at 8 p.m. (sharp) at the SET nightclub on 320 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.
Don't come alone: the concept of the event is tasting the grape varietal Merlot. Bring a team of 2-3 people as well as 3 bottles of Merlot (Doesn't have to be expensive) for this great cause which will feature a raffle at the end of the event for a two-night stay at The Hotel Riviera South Beach.
