Afternoon of Wine and cheese in St. Pete

We found this place before traveling to St. Petersburg for my Birthday. A Taste of Wine is located upstairs in the 200 block of Central Ave. Be sure to write down the address before you go, as its hard to just stumble upon, given all the other places in the area. They have a great selection of... read more

I,think they may be currently closed, but I hope not! It's an intimate setting with a big outdoor balcony. Every time we've been there it's like going to a friend's house for a party. Please only be on vacation and not closed for,good!

We went down to First Friday and unfortunately missed the live entertainment on the street but found this little gem to sip on wine and enjoy some craft beer. The wine is a little pricey, $7 for cheapest glass of wine, but worth it. Good atmosphere but small.

This amazing little wine bar is a fabulous find! Lots of great vintages all price points, by the bottle or the glass and its amazing! Sit indoor or on the balcony outside and sip and people watch! Fun, eclectic decor, nice staff! Light snacks on the menu along with great dessert wines, bubbly and fun! Enjoy this tucked away spot!

We went to this place solely based on Trip Advisor reviews (and from another site which shall remain nameless). Stopped in on a Saturday night before dinner. What a find! Small, cozy, very friendly! Nice chatting with the bartender Renee and the owner whose name we did not get. Excellent selection of wine which varies based on recent tastings. Several... More

My girlfriend and I like to wander around St. Pete at least once a week. We love to support unique local businesses and found this place by accident! We saw a sign for wine and a tiny little alley way and we were sold! On a small adventure up the staircase to the front door, we found a massive skylight... More

For a wine dinner priced at $50 per person, we expected our meal to be served on something nicer than plastic plates, and our water served in something nicer than small plastic cups. That seemed to "cheapen" the entire experience. The wine was very good. The people were very nice. The food was okay, but seemed like it was catered... More

Great place to have a nice glass of wine and relax. The balcony overlooking central is really nice. Our bartender was great and very friendly. Can be a little pricey IE $15 for a 6oz glass but it was delicious! Not a food place but the lite fair they have is really good and goes pretty good with the wine... More
