I really am excited, Ive been to many tastings and winery's and theres really no way to compare that to a bland supermarket buying, and fact is most kosher wine in south florida is sold in supermarkets. No tastings, no recommendations nada..

As much as a tasting, i'd like this to be a wine education / introduction, not just to wines being poured, but to the greater pleaure, joy and romantics of wine drinking and enjoyment.

If you know someone in South Florida, tell them to come!

I want to thank all forumites and non forumites that have helped me, I hope to G-d this spawns a generation of wine drinkers, so I may henceforth leech wine of neighbors without having to crash GG or elie :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Also put together a wine prize, so if you want to buy a ticket or 10 or 100 and support a great cause and maybe win 32 bottles of wine.. go here http://www.bmnmbauction.com/44-fine-wines/

On the other hand, if you make it to miami may 21-22, i promise you wont regret it
