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 or clicking (813) 879-2931.

The 'Old World' in wine circles refers to the heralded wine regions of France, Spain, Germany and Italy. They have been producing great wines for centuries more than we here in the 'New World', and have created classic blends and often-imitated styles of wine that we strive to equal or at least match. Tonight it is our pleasure to welcome our local Sommelier Celebrity Kevin Pelley to lead us through eight superb examples of his products from Europe's best vineyard spots. We will also offer our guests 3 courses of delicious bites from Tampa's own Vizcaya Restaurant.
