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

Set up above the craziness that Central Avenue can be, A Taste For Wine has been a delicious oasis for us for years now. We held my wife's 40th birthday party there, and have had nothing but great times with great people there. Amazing wines, and even a solid beer list for those that prefer the craft brews.

A Taste for Wine is kind of hidden, and upstairs. Don't let that make you miss out on this experience. I had the pinot gris; it was full-bodied and rich. My husband had the cabernet sauvignon, also a good choice. We each had a truffle to go with it. The owner was friendly and knowledgeable. There was live jazz music... More

For a wine bar that is in the middle of the action, this one had a nice atmosphere and a good selection. It had a lot of character, and the proprietor was very knowledgeable and accommodating.
