La Bottega is home to respected wine club La Cava, but it’s also where oenophiles and neophytes come together to drink and carouse. Members have access to a private locker in the underwater cellar (it was dug into the Florida limestone below the water table), as well as tastings, paired dinners and a monthly wine class taught by the bar’s wine director; non-members can take part in all of these activities for a fee. Wines change seasonally, but expect to find plenty of rosé and sparkling varieties ideal for Miami’s year-round heat wave.
