The Miami Wine & Food Festival shares a litany of libations and local eats with curious sommeliers and gourmands. The chic, outdoor Taste & Toast event introduces gustatory glands to wines from around the world. As taste buds hobnob with fruit and oak notes, guests intermingle with one another while snacking on gourmet treats from local restaurants and listening to the bluesy sound of the Jay Blues Band. Winesplorers can stick around after the tasting for a Glenfiddich “Music to Drink Whiskey By” after-party at 9 p.m., where a DJ and whiskey-tamer rest on hand to answer questions and dispel myths about using whiskey as cologne.
