15 Years of South Beach Wine and Food Festival

Celebrating its 15th year, the South Beach Wine and Food Festival is once again bringing the world's most renowned wine and spirits, chefs and celebrities to Miami Beach.

What began as a one-day festival held at Florida International University's Biscayne Bay campus, the festival has grown into one of the largest and best-known culinary festivals in the country.
