This year’s 2nd Annual Five-City “Perfect Pairing” Dating and Wine Tasting Series hosted by Banfi Wines kicked off in Miami and drew a crowd of more than 150 guests at the popular, Olla Miami restaurant on Tuesday, May 23, 2017.

Banfi wine expert and Sommelier, Sarah Brownell, educated the guests on wines from Castello Banfi, Italy’s award-winning and premier wine estate brands San Angelo (the leading Tuscan Pinot Grigio) and Centine (an approachable Tuscan Red Blend) with foods that pair well with them. The sensational evening of high-quality tasting also included a speed dating experience where hundreds of single men and women could potential find their perfect mate.
