Paying homage to Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s opening in 1954, Cellar 1954 Wine & Dinner Series pairs the world’s most prestigious wines and winemakers with the award-winning cuisine of Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s signature restaurants. The 2016 season continues with a lavish dinner on Thursday, May 19, 2016 at StripSteak by Michael Mina with world renowned Wines of Rioja, presented by Dhane Chesson, the US National Director for Wines of Rioja.

On May 19th, diners will enjoy a decadent four-course menu with passed hors d’oeuvres, prepared by StripSteak’s chef de cuisine Derrick Roberts, complemented by wines of Rioja. Located in north-central Spain, along the Ebro River, the Rioja region is about 210 square miles in size. Comprised mostly of red wine, Rioja categories of wine include Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva. The reds are gentle and elegant in flavor and mainly fruity in nature when young and more velvety when aged.
