This Week's Day-by-Day Picks

WED 1John Webber, manager of Wine World (1201 N. Federal Hwy., Ste. 5D, Fort Lauderdale) is excited about his industry these days. "In the last 20 years, we've experienced a golden age of great winemaking. There's hardly a bad wine out there." If you want to move past the chardonnays, cabernets, and merlots of Publix, to know the good from the bad and the nasty from the dee-lish, then Webber suggests you "build up what we call a tasting memory." Translation: Try lots of wines. A good place to start? Wine Down Wednesdays,a joint production between Wine World and its adjacent restaurant, Casa D'Angelo. These weekly tastings feature appetizers -- like bruscetta, olives, and cheeses -- plus several wines based around a theme. (One week, it was "Spanish Reds"; another Wednesday featured "South of the Equator" wines from Chile, South Africa, and Australia.) The event costs $15 and lasts from 5 to 7 p.m. Call 954-416-1234.
