Wine by the Bay Announces its Collectors Club


Last week, Wine by the Bay announced its first Collector’s Club wine tasting events set to kick off beginning Thursday, February 21, 2013, to coincide with yet serve as a break from the hectic opening of the South Beach Food and Wine Festival.

Take a break from the insanity, avoid the traffic on the beach and join owner and wine connoisseur Stefano Campanini for a rare chance to sample some of the most sought-after wines from California and Italy. Tickets are $100 per person and must be purchased in advance for admittance to the event. Pick up yours by calling 305.455.9791 or email

The Club currently has two upcoming ‘meetings’, the first on Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. and a subsequent meeting on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. Each ‘meeting’ will focus on a particular region of wine, and feature its own curated wine list you can see below.

If $100 per ticket falls out of your budget, you can still join Wine by the Bay for an affordable wine tasting option without compromising quality. On Friday, February 22nd at 7:00 p.m. Guests will taste and learn about a variety of 92+ rated wines for $20.00 per person with RSVP (same contact info as the club).

for additional information, visit the shop’s website or give them a call. Wine by the Bay hosts a myriad of special events for the wine enthusiasts amongst us, so follow them on facebook to make sure you never miss a thing.
