There's a good reason why the Latin word "vino" is often interchangeable with the English word "wine." Whatever the language, the glorious grape will be paired and celebrated along with the exotic cuisine and music at this year's ALL-NEW Taste of Latin America wine tastings!

With the advance purchase of a $10 daily tasting pass ($12 on-site), wine aficionados (and the vino-curious) can sample sexy varietals from the vineyards of Chile to more than two dozen wines from other Latin American countries.
