    Have a glass or two, it's for the kids.

    Is it sharp or round? Earthy or buttery? You be the judge at this weekend’s International Wine Challenge.

    Held at Smith & Wollensky, the wine starts flowing from 6 to 8:30 p,m. on Saturday and Sunday. Top wineries from around the world offer up their best libations for you to sip and size up for $50, benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami.

    What’s that you say? You don’t know anything more about wine than how to pop the top and drink it down? Not to worry, there will be 20 aficionados on tap to help you sort through the grape-y goodness.

    And should you happen make the same selection as your new sommelier friend, you may even win a prize (as though getting boozy all weekend isn’t enough of a gift).
