South Beach Wine and Food FestivalTickets are still available for most of the events but hurry to purchase them because they are selling out quickly. So far I know that I will be attending the the Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village along with my trusty photographer, my husband Steve. We won’t know until February 10th is we are getting Press Passes to any of the other events.

South Beach Wine and Food Festival South Beach Wine and Food FestivalThe South Beach Wine and Food Festival is continuing with their commitment to give you even more to love about their signature event!
