The Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE is a national, star-studded, four-day destination event showcasing the talents of the world’s most renowned wine and spirits producers, chefs and culinary personalities. This year, it's being held from February 21-24. In 2012, more than 60,000 guests attended nearly 50 events featuring more than 150 celebrated chefs and over 250 wineries, spirits producers, and non-alcoholic beverage suppliers. Events include star-studded receptions, seminars, tastings, dinners, brunches, and concerts.
So where should you stay? Fontainebleu Miami Beach is presenting Wine Spectator’s Best of the Best Sponsored by Bank of America, where proprietors and wine-makers from each winery are invited to pour their top varietals and to speak to attendees about their individual processes. As of this writing, nightly room rates start at $489.
Fans of Guy Fieri won't want to miss the once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the Food Network star team up with reggae legend Ziggy Marley for a closing party concert at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach. The party starts at 6:30 Sunday February 24, and the luxury hotel has rooms available starting at $529 per night. Marley will be presenting Ziggy Marley Organics™, a organic line of the World’s First flavored coconut oils and roasted flavored hempseeds.
Don't miss Paula Deen! She'll be at the VIP opening reception at the Delano Hotel. Paula and her sons, Jamie & Bobby, will be hosting Moët Hennessy's The Q. More than 40 of the top BBQ chefs from across the country will grill up chicken, ribs, brisket and pork butts from Omaha Steaks with smoky side dishes.
