Miami’s Wine by the Bay Celebrates Art Basel

To celebrate upcoming Art Basel, Wines by the Bay will stage some of their best wines with a backdrop of works by renowned American artists Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Hunt Slonem and Donald Sultan.

Recently opened, Wine by the Bay is a fine wine and art boutique that hosts ever-changing art exhibitions and regular wine tasting events. It will also serve as a venue for cultural events such as poetry readings and lectures on the visual arts. Their wine collection includes Burgundies, Bordeaux, Montrachet and top end Italian and California wines.

Owner Stefano Campanini began his career as a gallerist in New York and since 2004 he has co-own Etra Fine Art in Miami’s Design District. At Wine by the Bay, Campanini merges two of his greatest pleasures: collecting art and wine. Of Wine by the Bay’s prime location, Campanini says, “I love the crowd and the energy of Downtown Miami. An art and wine store across from the Miami Art Museum, the Miami Science Museum, next to the Genting Resorts World Miami and the Freedom Tower is beyond what I could have ever imagined. Many upscale restaurants and bars have moved their headquarters there because soon it will be the top area in our city. The energy in Downtown is unique – you can’t find this vibe anywhere else in Miami.”

The showcase will run from December 1 to 10 between noon and 9 p.m. each day.

Wine by the Bay is located at 888 Biscayne Blvd., Suite 112 at the Marina Blue.
