Here, walking among us every day, there are people who openly crave a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. They act perfectly natural most of the time, but then someone brings up the topic of red wine, and they immediately search for a glass and start a mantra of "Cabernet, must have some". We like these people. We cater to these people. So tonight, if you are some of those people, you can seek refuge and satisfaction with eight incredible Cabernets and Cabernet Blends that we will sympathetically pour to quench your craving. Reservations are required by credit card to join this Cabernet congregation and can be made by calling 813-879-2931. Check back here soon for details on which enchanting elixirs we'll be pouring this night.

Old World Charm - Wine Tasting
In wine world lingo, “old world” refers to the esteemed European regions of France, Italy and Spain. These lands go about making wines in more traditional ways that were established hundreds of years ago. They only grow certain grapes in certain areas, they name the wines after regions instead of grapes, and they take pride in using older methods to produce their wines. So tonight we pay homage and toast to their “old world” charm. Reservations to join us are appreciated and can be made by calling or clicking 813-879-2931
