In its own way, South Florida is wine country.
We have lots of wine bars and vino events. For example, some of the longest running and popular wine tastings that oenophiles from around the world keep on their calendar are held at Best Cellar Wine in Wilton Manors.
Owner Richard Stetler, who has been staging wine tastings there for 21 years, tells us what the allure is:
“It’s the only place you can come in and drink wines for three hours all night long … and buy wines at stupid prices,” he explains. “It doesn’t get a lot better than that. You’re going to meet all kinds of great people.”
The wine tastings are at 8 p.m. every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Admission is $20 ($25 for special event wine tastings).
He adds, “I’ve hosted … over 5,100 since 1998. That’s hard to believe, but I’ve done it. And I’m hoping for another 5,100.”
