Deering Estate hosts Prohibition Era Cellar Series - a unique tasting and historical experience
Explore a glimpse of South Florida's prohibition history by joining us for the Prohibition Era Cellar Series at the Deering Estate. Your journey takes you inside the basement of the Stone House, built in 1922. There, behind a wooden bookshelf, lies a historic steel bank-vault door securing original bottles of alcohol including rum, champagne, vermouth and gin from places such as Jamaica, France and Italy.
This series of intimate events, for limited number of guests, features tasting experiences from a variety of local and Florida based winery, brewery and distillery hosts. The next event, on Tuesday, Nov. 6 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. is presented by Quixote, and will feature a selection of wines paired with an assortment of small bites. Quixote staff will be on hand to explain the wine making process, to expand on their product selections and to offer wines for everyone to enjoy.
The cost is $40 per person. Limited tickets are available. Tickets can only be purchased in advance by calling 305-235-1668, ext. 233, or online.
A ticket will be mailed to each participant with the "password" to the "speakeasy," to be used on the evening of the event. Please note that you must be 21 years or older to attend.
