If you are anything like me and like to plan things ahead, here is another event that should most definitely appear on your social calendar – VINO 2009, a wonderful event sponsored by Italian Trade Commission. Don’t get scared away b/c it sounds so official, because it’s all about promoting the Italian wines and of course, FREE tastings of some of the most amazing wines Abruzzo’s distinctive Whites, Tuscany’s superb Reds, delightful Rosès from Calabria and elegant Sparklers from Lombardia. You won’t regret making a trip to downtown Miami – the event is held at the Hotel Intercontinental. Cheers – Ciao!!!
