**Please note that we promote our events in a variety of ways so the number of rsvps on meetup will not give you an accurate count. Also, your spot will not be reserved until you purchase your ticket. An RSVP or confirmation on meetup is not sufficient.
We're all about discovering new wine bars in town, so when we were turned onto Barmeli by one of our club members, we were quick to check it out. Owned and operated by Liza Meli (formerly of Anise and Ouzo), Barmeli features a stellar line-up of wines (focusing on wines from small family-owned wineries in the Mediterranean), many of which you've never heard of.
To go with the wines, Barmeli features Mediterranean tapas that are perfect for pairing, a charming atmosphere, plenty of parking and what is soon to be the friendliest bar in Miami.
For this event, we'll be teaming up with Ben Neji, formerly of Wine 69, who will be speaking about the wines.
Cost is $10 in advance or $15 at the door if space is available. This includes 1 glass of wine -- either Falanghina, 2011, Castello Ducale, Campania, IGT or Primitivo, 2010, Festa 1861 Selezione, Apulia, IGT -- and a selection of complimentary tapas.
Space is limited, so please purchase your tickets in advance.
