Wynwood “Feast for the Senses” Launch Event

Recently, I had the pleasure of attending a five-course champagne dinner in Wynwood; the launch event for a new monthly series “feast for the senses,” showcasing some of the most rare and sought after wines produced by prestigious winemakers from around the world.

This exquisite dinner party was presented by Etra Fine Art (Wynwood), Wine by the Bay (Downtown Miami), Ambassador for Henri Giraud, Michelle Brown, and Chef Daniele Cosmo. Lucky guests were treated to a culinary pairing of champagne and delicious bites, with a backdrop of contemporary art, and the soothing sounds of local classical guitarist – Federico Musgrove Stetson. Check out my photos for more details!

Guess who? Yours truly -just entering Etra Fine Art and getting snapped. I am wearing a Sweetly Scalloped Dress found here. I bought my floral pumps here. My quilted crossbody (I removed the straps that night) is from here. And looks like this with the straps:

What a great delightful night of champagne, food, laughs, music, and art! Stefano was a very hospitable host, and I look forward to more Wine by the Bay events! Check out upcoming Wine by the Bay Events for a fun and educational experience!
