South Beach Wine & Food Festival

SoBeWFF: The Best of Best of The Best 2013

If you felt slightly overwhelmed walking into last evening's Best of The Best at the Fontainebleau Hotel, you weren't alone.

After receiving your complimentary Riedel glass, you were accosted by nearly 50 of the world's best chefs serving the most decadent dishes you could wrap your head and your lips around.

Of course, there must be wine to go with the food. And that wine must be of high quality. So about 80 of the best vineyards around the globe were invited to pour their very best vintages.

With all that food and drink, how could you possibly navigate the event?
