Description: Welcome to Tapping The Vine™. We hope you enjoy many visits with us online...
Welcome to Tapping The Vine™. We hope you enjoy many visits with us online and in person. When we think of wine and beer or any drink for that matter, we have one "rule". If you like it, drink it! No snobbery here. Our selections are from across the country and around the world; we taste each one for quality to insure they are worthy. We like to share food and good times and offer a range of tastes. Many foods we offer are smaller dishes (aka tapas). Seasonal dishes enter and leave our menu regularly. You'll not find a "theme" to our menus other than quality and variety. For those more familiar with the world of wine, Tapping The Vine™ is the only location in north Pinellas County to have received the prestigious Wine Spectator 2014 Award of Excellence. We invite you to review the Wine Spectator by clicking on the Award logo. Tapping The Vine™ is yours to enjoy in a quiet, tasteful setting indoors or under the shady oaks outside on our delightful patio. Bring your pets to the patio, too. You can also make group reservations - just ask us. We'll be glad to help. We look forward to seeing you at one or more of our events. Let us challenge your taste buds at one of our wine tastings. Check our calendar for future dates and look over the "Specials" page in the menu section of the site. You'll see us in and around the community supporting our friends and neighbors, too. We look forward to seeing you, somewhere.

If you are staying at the Safety Harbor Spa or attending an event at the Ruth Eckerd Hall, or heck, just out for a drive and a walk around quaint downtown Safety Harbor, you MUST stop at Tapping The Vine and enjoy this charming tapas and wine spot. The wine menu is extensive. Laura, the friendly co-owner/ SOMMELIER has no... More

After reading good reviews we had high expectations but we were very disappointed. Warm wine and strange combinations of food, not helped by being served at different times. Small over priced portions too, we left early and went elsewhere

The owners of Tapping the Vine have somehow figured out what this city is about and managed to represent it in their wine, beer and food selections. The menu is always changing, yet never disappointing. The servers are knowledgeable, and also people you get to know since it's almost like you're visiting someone's home and have befriended their personal chef.... More

Friendly owners and servers. Food always amazing. Try the cheese plate! Wines are best in the area and the atmosphere will ease your mood. Great place to relax with friends.

Just thirty seconds before the heavens opened last night, we decided to duck into the nearest shelter and eat. This was Tapping the Vine in Safety Harbor. The welcome was warm and genuine, from people who obviously enjoy the fusion of fine food with suggested accompanying drinks, be it wine or local beers. We sat in a beautifully decorated room...

We came on this little gem by chance. It is up Main Street and is a fantastic little restaurant. We shared platters of cooked meats, cheese, tuna and bruschetta, followed by mains of steak, scallops, prawns. Each dish has a wine recommendation with it. Very friendly staff, defiantly recommend to all.

If you want good wine, food and atmosphere, come to this place. My sisters and I enjoyed a glass of wine and delicious appetizers. Shrimp, bruschetta, pasta, and more--fresh, clever, delish. Eat here. Great environment, service, food, wine! Yum!
