Q: Can you share details about the planned buffet?

A: The menu details for this year’s event will be revealed soon. Typically, attendees can expect a selection of fresh pasta dishes, gourmet sandwiches, carving stations, artisanal cheeses, and delicious desserts.

Q: Why is Seminole Hard Rock the ideal venue for the South Florida festivities?

A: Wine Spectator chose Seminole Hard Rock due to the successful Big Smoke events held there since 2019. Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest will also take place at the property on Saturday, March 4, bringing together Cigar Aficionado and Whisky Advocate, sister publications to Wine Spectator.

Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from the event will support the Wine Spectator Scholarship Foundation, which offers grants and scholarships to various wine-related and culinary programs. Over $30 million has been raised to date, thanks to the contributions of vintners and wine enthusiasts worldwide. This charitable aspect allows attendees to give back to the wine community in a meaningful way.
