Miami Dolphins and Santa Rita wines

See also

This Sunday the Miami Dolphins meet their biggest rivals at Sun Life Stadium this Sunday December 29 at 1pm, the New York Jets. The Dolphins are still in the hunt for a playoff spot and the Jets stand in their way. The only thing better than a nail biting finish to the football season is a good tailgating party. And there is no better place to tailgate in America than Miami.
To help with this weeks tailgating, Miami’s own Badia Spices and Chile’s Santa Rita 120 Wines have partnered to make a grand tailgating guide. This Sunday from 8am-1pm at Sun Life’s Grand Plaza Santa Rita and Badia will offer special tastings, coupons and tailgating tips. The tailgating guide will offer food and wine pairings. The best part is you don’t have to attend the game; with the purchase of a parking pass you can gain access to this special event.
Here are some tasting notes of recently tasted Santa Rita 120 wines.
