Wine Club Miami Holiday Party 2014

Wine Club Miami made its mark this holiday season celebrating eight years of wine and great friendship. Scarpetta at the Fontainebleau was a terrific setting as we paired an exceptional collection of notable wines with excellent Italian fare.

Five selected non-vintages, arranged by our incoming president Jeff Tenen featured 4 wines and excellent Brut Rose Champagne to start a memorable evening with a few memorable highlights. Nice mix dry and soft white wines with the complexities of aged Italian wines.

Many highlights, having both Montrachet’s was notable and it seems the group was split on which one was the dominant choice. The Italian reds did seem to be nicely placed with the Duck Foie Gras Ravioli as well as the Braised short ribs and the Spaghetti.
