Wine lovers and wannabe-connoisseurs alike rejoice! This spring, Abaco Wines & Wine Bar, the Miami Design District’s premiere bespoke luxury wine shop and tasting room, has unveiled a robust social calendar chock full of tastings and educational events. Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, join Abaco’s knowledgeable sommeliers for a variety of events. Tickets for each event cost $25, which Abaco will refund with any $50 purchase in-store the day of the event.
Join Abaco every Tuesday as they make their way through the Le Nez du Vin wine scent aroma kit of the 54 most common aromas you find in wine. Guests use the kit to identify aromas in three wines served at each tasting. Charcuterie and light bites are served.
Wednesdays are all about embracing the local flavor. Abaco sommeliers scour the weekly Market #atMDD for local eats and tasty treats that pair with their favorite varietals and wines they’re excited about.
On Thursdays, Abaco teams up with their favorite restaurants like The Salty Donut and Yardbird for an out-of-the-box tasting and fun cocktail party style event where guest can enjoy wine in a casual setting.
For the serious wine student, Saturdays from 6-7pm, join the sommeliers for more in-depth and educational classes. You’ll become an expert in no time!
