This month’s curator: Bianca Sanon of Paradis Books & Bread, Miami
Bianca Sanon grew up in South Florida in a Haitian-American home where French and Creole food and conversation flowed freely. After moving to NYC to attend Columbia University, she considered a corporate career in fashion but quickly fell in love with restaurants and hospitality. Working her way up in the NYC food and beverage industry, Bianca ultimately gravitated towards wine. So she enrolled in the Sommelier Society of America, graduating with distinction and eventually making her way back to Miami. She most recently served as the general manager and beverage director of the James Beard-nominated Miami restaurant, Boia De, but is now striking out as co-owner of a new venture: Paradis Books & Bread, a bookstore-slash-wine bar-slash-bakery in North Miami, opening in 2021.
This month’s theme: Celebration-worthy wines (that aren’t Champagne)
A celebration pairs best with Champagne, right? Well, depends how you want to celebrate — and this year, that might look like an elaborate home-cooked dinner for two or a cozy day spent by the fire in PJs. That homey dinner date calls for a special bottle of rich, earthy red wine, while low-key daytime imbibing is better paired with something light and refreshing. Meanwhile, New Year’s Eve still calls for bubbles, but perhaps a more interesting (and less fussy) variety this year. This month’s wines set you up to celebrate the end of 2020 in whatever way you please.
