The 2003 Miami International Wine Fair will be held at the James L. Knight Center (Downtown Miami adjacent to Brickell Avenue) on October 2-4, 2003. These dates will facilitate local importers and distributors' participation before their fourth quarter mayhem begins. Simultaneously, it will allow exhibitors to reach professional buyers and consumers in time for Thanksgiving and New Year celebrations. "We expect the Miami International Wine Fair to become the largest wine shopping experience in the Americas.", said David Bernad, MIWF's General Manager. "Not only are we committed to attracting buyers from Florida, the Caribbean and Latin America, but also to offering South Florida's consumers the opportunity to learn, taste and shop from the largest selection ever, all under the same roof and at unbeatable prices", added Bernad.
Miami's 2nd Annual International Wine Fair will open exclusively to the wine trade and media on Thursday, October 2nd from 11AM to 5PM. On Friday and Saturday the Grand Tasting Floor will also be open to the general public. Over 1,000 wines from nearly 400 wineries in 20 countries will be available for attendees to taste paired with exquisite gourmet delicacies prepared by South Florida's finest chefs. A comprehensive program of industry seminars and educational tastings for restaurateurs and consumers alike will run parallel to the Grand Tastings of Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Other amenities in the program will include a VIP room showcasing rare wines and unique culinary samples, a Cigar & Brandy Lounge, a Saturday brunch and special wine-maker dinners before, during and after the Fair.
