The 2013 edition of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival kicked off with Moët Hennessy's the Q, the bash that brings bubbly, barbeque, and famous faces to the beach.

Thousands of guests converged under the SoBeWFF party tents to drink good Champagne and hand crafted cocktails and to eat barbeque made by some of the world's best chefs while being entertained by Latin funk fusion band, Suenalo.

Our favorite Miami chefs were joined by culinary bigwigs, Food Network celebrities, and America's favorite weatherman (who can really cook)!
