Food & Wine executive editor Ray Isle will share his finest wine pairings beachside, while renowned mixologist Charles Joly will entertain guests with his exceptional handcrafted cocktails.

We are thrilled that the guests, sponsors and chefs continue to bring this spectacular event to Cayman year after year.”
