'Blends Have More Fun' - Wine Tasting
Blending different grapes together has been the winemaker's main tool for making better and more interesting wines for centuries. Furthermore, it gives the resulting blends balance, depth, complexity, and makes the wine more complete. That's why American wine enthusiasts are fascinated by the details of what each winemaker has created in his own, distinct culmination of grapes, both red and white. Tonight we will delve into ten custom-made concoctions, and have some fun figuring out exactly what we are tasting in these blends. Reservations are appreciated and can be made by calling or clicking (813) 879-2931. Check back here soon to see which wines we have selected for our gathering this night.
Central Coast Calling - Wine Tasting PLUS
For too long we here at Vintage Wine Cellars have been neglecting the importance of the Central Valley and the Central Coast regions of California. It is home to many AVAs that we know and love, like Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, and Monterey. So tonight we are answering this call by showcasing ten wines that are top quality wines from California’s Central regions. The PLUS for tonight’s event is Cambria Vineyards, their brand ambassador Sarah Lancaster of Jackson Family Estates, and her accoutrements from The Cowgirl Creamery. Reservations to join this centric sampling are appreciated and can be made by calling or clicking 813-879-2931. Click on the Title above to reveal which Central Coast wines we have called upon and what Sarah is bringing for us to sample.
March Madness - Bracketed Wine Tournament
The popular NCAA Basketball competition will culminate later this month, but we wanted to bounce a fun idea by you before it ends. Tonight we will host a taste-off between 10 tasty varietals from various wine regions, and invite you to be judges on which wines are winners in a head-to-head format. Reservations for this bracketed imbibing are appreciated and can be made by calling or clicking (813) 879-2931. Check back here soon as we fill out the brackets for this tasty tournament.
'The Rating Game' Seated Wine Seminar
Ratings are an integral part of the fine wine business. Winemakers and wholesalers use these ratings to help sell their wine. Wine buyers and enthusiasts use these ratings as a "quality assurance" method in making wine choices. All the wines we will taste tonight have earned a high A (90+) rating from the various wine media and critics. Join us to see if you agree, and get a chance to purchase some highly rated wines before they are sold out. Reservations for this numbers game are appreciated and can be made by calling (813) 879-2931. Check back here soon to see which highly rated wines we have selected for this evening.

Best of the Bay winner in multiple years!
The big wine warehouses fall short in knowing and tasting their products - here they do both, and are happy to share that knowledge with you. - Yelp!
