Opens for business on September 28, 2011

Etra Fine Art gallery co-owner, Stefano Campanini will open a new business on September 28, Wine by the Bay. Wine by the Bay will be a fine wine and art boutique hosting an ever-changing art exhibition. The store boasts a sleek and sophisticated contemporary interior and magical terrace view of Miami’s Biscayne Bay.

The Wine by the Bay Grand Opening event will be on Thursday, October 6. Attendees will enjoy an evening designed to satisfy the palate and enlighten both the connoisseur and the curious. The opening night event will feature art by Mimmo Paladino, Emanuele Viscuso, Mario Velez, and Wilfredo Lam alongside a showcase of exceptional wine including Gaja, Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Insigna. To learn more about Wine by the Bay or attend the grand opening event, email Stefano Campanini at or call (305) 491-8400.

After seven years running a successful contemporary art gallery with his wife Alicia Restrepo, Campanini has decided to merge his passion for art and wine and create a unique space that caters to the most seasoned wine collector, but also where the passerby will feel comfortable and at home.

“Besides everyday superior customer-oriented service and a unique selection of wines that suit every budget, I plan to hold regular art and wine tasting events that will both entertain and educate the community,” states Campanini. “Whereas in the Design District we deal with a select clientele, I am looking forward to offering something that everyone enjoys and in an environment where the art can be appreciated by many and in an unintimidating way. At art openings, wine is like a sideshow, but now, it will take center stage.”

Choosing the best wine to sell is a very selective process much like identifying great art. Campanini has personally tasted all of the wines that will make up the store’s inventory.

“I tried to have a selection of wines that represent the energetic location where I am,” says Campanini. “A selection that includes most of the Premiere Grand Cru from France and the finest Italian wines, but I also was in search of wines that are hidden treasures.” California wines are also well represented with a good selection of wines scoring more that 93 points by the two most reliable wine experts.

For the grand opening week, customers will be offered special discounts and incentives on all wines.

Located on 888 Biscayne Bay at the Marina Blue, Wine by the Bay overlooks the bay directly across from the American Airlines Arena. The 1200 square foot boutique will serve Miami’s downtown area and become a functional part of city’s new cultural identity and expansion efforts such as the Genting project, the Mikado Hotel, and the new Miami Art Museum.
