About Us

Art and Wine, Elephant Art, Wine“Throughout history, art and wine have always stimulated the senses hand-in-hand. Alan and Tara Hernandez, residents of Palm Beach Gardens, founded Art & Wine Palm Beach to bridge a selection of flavorful, alluring fine wines with the diverse culture of South Florida’s art community.

At a very young age, Alan found himself naturally fond of art and sculpture; he would often sculpt various animals such as elephants and hippos he would see at the zoo. Art seems to be in Alan’s blood as, upon having his genealogy researched, Alan learned he was the descendant of a prominent sculptor and statesman, Franscisco Pi Margall. Art was a recurring hobby and love for Alan even as he pursued other endeavors where he would serve his country as a member of the air force and then his local community as a Juno Beach Police Officer. While he sculpts a plethora of different subjects, Alan’s favorite pieces center around marine life and, more specifically, brightly colored sea turtles which are exhibited at local galleries in his area. He hopes that his brand of art, while not limited to marine life, is a reminder to live harmoniously with our sea creature friends.

Back in the year 2000, Tara discovered her love of fine wine during a trip to California. After visiting the Napa Valley with a friend, she had left with a wine club membership, a case of wine, and a new appreciation for wine culture. Throughout her adult life, Tara learned to appreciate the ritual of wine, wine-making, and the magic of finding just the right bottle. Upon her relocation to South Florida in 2011, Tara was enjoying an accomplished professional career in accounting and finance but never lost her love of wine and wine culture. Tara and Alan fell in love when they met in 2012 and, much like art and wine, found themselves to be a perfect pair.

Today, the two channel their shared love of art and wine into their business where they create connections between local art events and exotic wine tastings. Their brand is one of sophistication, charisma, and an appreciation for the finer things in life. In addition to offering intimate, privately-hosted wine tastings for both small and large gatherings, they also sell these exclusive brands in tandem with hand-crafted art pieces directly to members. As wine is often given as a gift or consumed in a time of celebration, Art & Wine Palm Beach also offers art, jewelry, and more with customized labels or etched bottles. Allow Art & Wine Palm Beach to be paired with your next party, event, or celebration and may your glasses always be full!”
