Fans of ex-Miami Dolphin, current sports broadcaster and wine fan Jimmy Cefalo will remember that when his wine shop was located near The Falls shopping center, he held regular wine tastings with some pretty unusual, top-flight wines. Now he’s restarting those tastings at his new Cefalo’s Wine Cellar in Coconut Grove, which opened about a year ago.
The first is 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Fri., June 20, at 3540 Main Highway.
For $30 fans get a $20 card to use the Enomatic tasting machine plus free pours of Italian wines hosted by Julie Mushett of Vinifera Imports.
These are some unusual wines, including the 2006 Prosecco “Millesimato” Soligo; 2006 Fiano d’Avellino, Roca de Principe; 2006 Morrelino d’Scansano, Castello Romitorio; 2005 Nero d’Avola “Chiaramonte” Firriato; 205 Primitivo Rosa del Golfo; 2004 Chianto Classico Fontodi and 2003 Barbaresco “Nubiola” Pellissero.
Tasters may take home the Zafferano glass they use at the tasting.
Oh, and Jimmy will be there talking football and wine.
