The Deering Estate Foundation’s fabulous Wine On Harvest Moon (WOHM) event, presented by South BMW, is back and even better than ever with a tantalizing theme of Spirits, Spells and American Lore that is sure to charm guests’ senses. The event is on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m., at the Deering Estate at Cutler, located at 16701 SW 72 Ave. in Palmetto Bay. Tickets now are on sale.
Philanthropists, foodies, art lovers and environmentalists will spend an enchanting evening under the full Harvest Moon at the historic bayfront property as they celebrate the allure of American folklore through the fine wine and spirits of the continental U.S., the tasty vittles paired by top local chefs, and the delight of the macabre to the mysterious in entertainment, including chilling musical performances, haunting vignettes, contemporary art, and an enticing live auction.
Event chair for the eighth year, Deering Estate Foundation board member Howard Tendrich is excited to honor American wine, cuisine, art and classic literature for this year’s event.
“Wine On Harvest Moon has become the Foundation’s signature fundraising event,” Tendrich said. “The awareness, attention and, of course, moneys it affords the estate for our educational programs, cultural events and conservational efforts is amazing, and it’s simply wonderful that the theme this year so beautifully complements Deering Estate’s own vibrant history.”
Presented by Crown Wine, Spirits & Gourmet, a coast-to-coast journey through America will take guests to different wine or spirit producing regions of the U.S., marrying each with a thrilling sub-theme plucked from some of the country’s most revered folklore. Décor, lighting, and entertainment will embellish, and food will be paired to the theme, region and corresponding libation.
A stellar lineup of chefs/restaurants are hard at work creating their own masterpieces to coincide including: Oliver Rodriguez of The Biltmore Hotel, Rojelio Fernandez of Brio Tuscan Grille, Diego Solano of Bulla Gastrobar, Rod Chitikov of Devon Seafood + Steak, Alberto Cabrera of Little Bread, Phil Bryant of The Local Craft Food & Drink, Kareem Anguin of Oceanaire Seafood Room, Miguel Antonio Gomez Fernández of Pisco Y Nazca, and Julia Ning of Station 5 Miami, as well as Anacapri Cucina Italiana, CRAVE American Kitchen & Sushi Bar, Golden Rule Seafood, and Whole Foods Market Coral Gables, among others.
