AFWC Charity Wine Gala dinner, a spectacular annual black tie-optional event, is one of the most looked forward to in South Florida. The Sparkling Reception features sparkling wines from the competition, an amazing array of hors dâ€™oeuvres, and a silent auction where all wines from the competition, signed by the winemakers, are available for the biding. Dozens of Winemakers participate in the Tasting Room walk where they pour their finest wines for guests just prior to dinner. The magnificent wine-inspired dinner highlights all of the awarded wineries (more than 700), poured table-side by our Wine Angels, most of whom are students of FIUâ€™s Chaplin School of Hospitality. Six winemakers are awarded â€œBest of the Yearâ€ during a lovely ceremony and live music by the tribute band, Breeze, brings the party into the wee hours. Individual tickets are $300.
