Wine Down, America’s premier wine tasting party, has joined forces with Boutari Wines and Viceroy Miami to host Wine Down Miami.

On Wednesday, August 25th from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., Miamians are invited to join celebrity wine consultant Michael Green and Wine Down co-founder Andrew Levine for Wine Down Miami at Viceroy’s Club 50 for a celebration of food, wine, and the Mediterranean lifestyle. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy unlimited tastes of delicious and distinct wines from the Boutari portfolio and signature hors d’oeuvres from celebrity chef Michael Psilakis’ Mediterranean-inspired Eos restaurant.

“We are thrilled to be bringing our Wine Down brand to Miami,” says Wine Down co-creator Michael Green. “We’ve selected partners in Boutari Wines, Viceroy Miami, Club 50, and Eos Restaurant that will allow us to give our young professional demographic a first-class experience for a very reasonable ticket price.”

“Miami is the perfect location to showcase the refreshing summer wines of Boutari,” noted Patrick Bennett, Boutari Marketing Manager. “We are pleased that our partnership with Wine Down will allow us to celebrate great wines and the Mediterranean lifestyle.”

Wine Down is America’s premier interactive wine tasting party. Co-founded by wine celebrity Michael Green, formerly the Wine and Spirits Consultant to Gourmet Magazine, and Andrew Levine, Wine Down was created to make wine more social and accessible by marrying themed wine selections with top DJs and live bands, dramatic spaces, culinary celebrities, passed hors d’oeuvres, giveaways and more. Wine Down was twice selected by Time Out New York as one of “The Best Drinking Events in New York” and recently featured at the 2010 Food Network Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival with the Wine Down Art Show with Ted Allen and Wine Down 101: Fast Track to Wine Expertise. Wine Down will be making its international debut at The Ritz-Carlton Dubai in October 2010.

Founded in 1879 by its namesake Yiannis Boutari, the Boutari winery is the oldest family-owned winery in Greece and one of its leading producers of native Greek grape varieties like Moschofilero and Xinomavro. When Yiannis Boutari became the first winemaker to bottle and ship Xinomavro (the noble red grape of Greece), he changed the world’s perception of Greek wines by showing that Greece had the potential to deliver fine wines to the dinner tables of Europe. Greece is the Mediterranean’s most mountainous country: its “continental climate” (with warm summer days, cool summer evenings) and ancient volcanic soils are ideal for the production of world-class wines. Today, the Boutari family oversees 6 state-of-the-art wineries spanning each of the top Greek controlled-origin appellations (AOC) and produces some of the greatest expressions of Greek grape varieties, as well as modern-styled bottlings of popular French varieties like Syrah and Merlot.

Viceroy Miami is the centerpiece of the unprecedented ten-acre Icon Brickell enclave in downtown Miami. Overlooking Biscayne Bay at the gateway to Miami’s financial district, this glamorous urban resort was conceived by South Florida’s most prominent developer, The Related Group, in collaboration with iconic figures in architecture (Arquitectonica), interior design (Kelly Wearstler) and hospitality (Viceroy). Viceroy muse Kelly Wearstler has created a provocative blend of modern sophistication and exotic Asian accents for Viceroy Miami’s 162 guestrooms, suites and residences, as well as for the lobby, restaurants, lounges and event spaces. The hotel’s 15th-floor destination restaurant anchors Icon Brickell’s two-acre outdoor living room and pool terrace, while a sky-high rooftop pool bar crowns the tower. Managed by Viceroy Miami, the 28,000-square-foot full-service Spa at Icon Brickell offers ten treatment rooms, signature Viceroy wellness experiences, a 5,000-square-foot water lounge and an expansive fitness facility.
