Imagine a microcosmic version of EPCOT except less crowded and without screaming kids and creepy adults dressed as cartoon characters. You could truly drink around the world and discover a variety of flavors straight from the vine last weekend at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The 10th Anniversary Miami International Wine Fair went far beyond your typical wine tasting to include spirits, food, accessories and cigars. Winemakers brought bottles from Argentina, Chile, France, Spain and even emerging wine markets like Canada, Brazil, South Africa and Portugal. They occupied dozens of booths roughly organized by region, ready to serve their samples and talk shop with business owners and distributors. Many wines were available exclusively at the fair, and haven't yet hit the market.
Merlots and Rieslings and Shiraz, oh my!
