Bayfront Bistro Introduces New Wine List to Benefit Breast Cancer Research in Honor of Mother’s Day

Extensive collection available by the glass or bottle, with portion of profit from selected bottles sold donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Southwest Florida Affiliate for the next year

Fort Myers Beach, FL, May 01, 2010 --( Bayfront Bistro, the waterside restaurant at Snook Bight Yacht Club & Marina on Fort Myers Beach, will introduce a new wine list including some of the finest labels from America’s West Coast on May 12 at a kickoff wine dinner at 6:30 p.m. Hundreds of wines from California, Oregon and Washington along with French Champagnes ranging in price from $25 to $550 can now be enjoyed with the eatery’s award-winning cuisine.

“We pride ourselves on having a wine collection that suits nearly every taste,” says Bayfront Bistro and Snook Bight Yacht Club & Marina president Joe Yerkes. “We offer 59 wines by the glass and over 200 by the bottle.” Yerkes also says the restaurant offers its wines at approximately two-thirds of the price fine dining restaurants charge, making Bayfront Bistro a great place to sample new varieties.

A portion of the profits – at least $2 per bottle – of selected wines sold at Bayfront Bistro will also benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure Southwest Florida Affiliate. Last fall, Snook Bight hosted its first All Aboard Against Breast Cancer waterside festival to raise money for the charity. A wine dinner and auction at Bayfront Bistro were part of the event, and the restaurant also donated a portion of the sales of signature Cocktails for the Cure to Komen during October.

“We were able to raise more than $70,000 for the cause and our involvement has grown from there,” Yerkes says. “Everyone had a great time at the events and is excited about this new opportunity to support the Komen affiliate. This isn’t a promotion. We’ll donate a portion of the profit from each bottle of wine year round.”

Bayfront Bistro’s new list will be officially unveiled at a wine dinner on May 12. Wines will be 30 percent off of their already low prices that evening and a five-course dinner with a choice of Kobe Beef or Butterfish entrée can be had for $50. Call 239-765-4371 for reservations.
