Some days are just more delicious than others.  Bacchus would have enjoyed the unlimited samples of wine and food at the Arsht this week.   Organized by the I.E.E.M, and the International Exhibition Management I.E.M., the popular Simply Italian trade event brought together an international wine industry and hosted a series of educational seminars and tastings presented by distinguished experts in their respective fields.   Also on the roster, I.E.E. M. honored “Simply the Best Women in Wine”. 

At the end of the busy day, guests, wine experts and ‘wine-ies’ gathered in the grand Ziff Ballet Opera House lobby of the Arsht Center for  ample sips and succulent snacks. More than 40 producers from Italy’s finest regions poured their latest releases and filled the cups of lucky guests.  Restaurants such as Bocce, Salumeria 104, Toscana Divino-Ironside Pizza, Vero Italian and Via Verdi shared their delectable menu items with guests.
