We came here during the day while meandering around downtown ST Petersburg. It was very quiet since it was really, so we got very individualized service. The wine was nice and my Chardonnay was very smooth and buttery. They have s nice selection of cheeses and charcutrie plates.

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 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 wines and a... More

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
