Your favorite team may not win the FIFA's World Cup, but perhaps they do have the best wine.

There are more than a few FIFA countries that produce both great soccer players and great wines, so the Miami Beach Veiled Wine Society is hosting a blind tasting that will put their grapes head to head.

To participate call two of your best friends and go Dutch on three bottles of the same red from any country that is sending a team to play in the World Cup 2010 (Argentina, France, Italy, Australia, etc.).  Two of your bottles will be shared amongst the group, the third will be reserved as part of the victor's spoils.  The team with the winning bottle takes home three quarters of the bootie, with the runner up getting the rest.

Saturday, June 5th, 8 p.m.-10:30 p.m., at SET, 320 Lincoln Rd; Miami Beach; 305-531-2800. To sign up or more information visit www.mbvws.org; $10 suggested donation for Teach For America.
