The annual invasion of chefs, foodies and winos onto Miami Beach returns Feb. 23 – 26 as the South Beach Wine & Food Festival returns for its 11th year.
Most of the large events have sold out, but plenty of tickets remain for seminars, smaller parties and intimate dinners – so there is no excuse if you can’t get your wine on that weekend. (Click here for available tickets from the Festival’s official website)
