Temperatures continue to warm in the City Beautiful, and I can feel the tempo beginning to slow down on the wine scene, as Central Florida slips into its languid summer pace. But there are still plenty of events to enjoy and plenty of recurring events to check out too.

Given the slower pace, I’ll go ahead and share event highlights for the next two weeks. It works out well, since I’ll also be a little busy in the coming days. As I write this, I’m winging my way to California wine country – be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook for updates on my adventures!

Without further ado, here are …


Tuesday, Tim’s Orlando welcomes Charlie Masters –  and his wines from France, Italy, and California – with an al fresco barbecue.

Thursday, a tasting at Swirlery features wines from the Southern Hemisphere, and Tim’s Lake Mary offers a free tasting of chardonnays from around the world.

Sunday, Tim’s Avalon Park holds a tasting of wines from Tuscany.

Wednesday, May 22, Tim’s Orlando holds a class on wines of Sicily, Corsica, and Sardinia.

Thursday, May 23, Digress holds a festive walk-around tasting to kick off the summer season, and Luisa’s Cellar hosts a tasting for International Chardonnay Day.

All the details are on the Calendar Page, so chill out with one of these cool events over the next couple of weeks. Then, grab an ice bucket and a bottle, kick back on the porch, and embrace the onset of summer in all its sultry, steamy glory.

Cheers, and see you soon, Orlando!
