Miami’s Sizzling SOBE Wine & Food Festival

Posted by Timbers Resorts on January 22, 2013

The South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine magazine and the Food Network every winter brings together everything Timbers Resorts loves and stands for: fine food, wine and travel, all while staying in the finest luxury accommodations. This year from February 21 through February 24, the biggest stars from the food and wine worlds will descend upon Miami for four star-studded days of tastings, parties, seminars and brunches.

After taking part in the New York City Wine & Food Festival in October, Timbers Resorts has been invited to take part in its winter equivalent, affectionately known as SOBE Wine & Food (or in Twitterspeak, #SOBEWFF). And with many of our Owners and friends residing in Miami all or part of the year, there’s nowhere else Timbers Resorts would rather be.

If you join in the festivities, you’ll find Timbers Resorts at Wine Spectator’s Best of the Best at the Fontainebleau Miami on Friday, February 22, and at the Tribute Dinner at Loews Miami Beach Hotel on Saturday, February 23.

Best of the Best is all about perfect pairings. Leading chefs from around the country select from Wine Spectator’s top-rated wines to accompany their dishes, bringing the experience of both the food and wine to new heights.

At SOBE Wine & Food Festival’s must-attend event — a tribute dinner for Nobu Matsuhisa hosted by Martha Stewart — Timbers Resorts will be a contributor to the live auction, so don’t forget your checkbook.

Chef Matsuhisa is hands down the king of stylish, inventive Japanese cuisine, with 35 red-hot restaurants worldwide. Top chefs Daniel Boulud, Thomas Buckley, Frederic Delaire, Ricky Estrellado, Matt Hoyle, Johnny Iuzzini, Yoshihiro Murata, Yuji Wakiya and Roy Yamaguchi will each prepare a course for an unprecedented, once-in-a-lifetime meal.

Of course, simply attending the main event — SOBE Wine & Food Festival’s Grand Tasting Village — is a fun and exciting excursion in itself. Catch demonstrations from rock star chefs including Bobby Flay, Paula Deen, Rocco DiSpirito, Rachael Ray and others, or simply taste the wares from hundreds of wineries, restaurants and even liquor companies and tourism boards.

Whatever your “taste,” SOBE Wine & Food Festival will have plenty to satisfy. But tickets to the hottest events and rooms at the most luxe hotels are going fast, so don’t waste any time in booking your trip. Bon Appetit!
