If you enjoy wine, and we mean good wine, you'll be excited to hear that DB Bistro Moderne has brought back its wine dinner series, Miami's Own.
The event aims to promote awareness of local organizations through its "intimate dinner party" format, where guests and leaders can mingle and discuss the city's cultural programs and progress.
The Miami Symphony Orchestra's music director and conductor, Eduardo Marturet, hosted the first dinner last month. Pérez Art Museum Miami director Thom Collins, who's also an art historian, educator, and author, will host the second evening of gourmet food and fine wine this Tuesday. DB Bistro will release its lineup of hosts for the fall in the next few weeks.

"We're excited about DB Bistro Miami's Own wine dinner series. It's an excellent way to merge the culture of food and wine with that of the arts," said DB Bistro's sommelier, Christopher Birnie-Visscher. "Having Thom Collins host the second dinner in the series adds a compelling aspect, considering the importance of PAMM to Miami's growing art and culture scene."
