Hail Bacchus!

Many people associate wine with elegance and class. But two upcoming events will help you celebrate the God of wine in the tackiest spots of Miami: Kendall and Hialeah.

The first will take place this Saturday and Sunday, March 14th and 15th, at Hialeah’s PRP Wines International. The company will open its warehouse doors for a free tasting of 30 to 40 wines from from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Bottle prices range from $18 to $25, with a handful of boutique wines priced at $30 and up. No need to RSVP; just ask for wine consultant Seena Chriti.

The second event takes place at ABC Fine Wine & Spirits on Wednesday, March 18th from 6p.m. to 8p.m. The store, located at at 12620 SW 120th Street, is charging ten dollars for the event - a souvenir ABC Fine Wine & Spirits logo wine glass, gourmet hors d’oeuvres and a coupon good toward any purchase made on the night of the event are included in the price of admission.

If you're a wino and can't make it to those events, don't fret. Here are two ongoing Miami wine specials:

Every Tuesday, wine bottles are 50% off at the Brickell restaurant Novecento. But, even better than that, Wine 69, located in the Upper East Side, has a Happy Hour deal that gets you up to 60 percent off wine “flights” - 2.5-ounce portions of three wines. Prices normally range from $13 to $16 dollars.

Here's how it works: you get charged based on the time you place your order. So, if you order at 6:15 p.m., you pay $6.15. Order at 7:02, and you pay $7.02. Happy begins at 6p.m. and ends at 8p.m.
