A Taste for Wine
241 Central Ave. Upstairs
Saint Petersburg, FL 33701
A Taste for Wine is a cozy little upstairs lounge with couches and comfy chairs. This downtown St. Pete wine bar is great place to chill with a date especially if you’re looking for value. Their logo states they were established in 1995 as the original wine bar so I assume they have a good following.
If you are seeking out a Barolo, Bordeaux, Napa Cab, or a French white, I wouldn’t recommend A Taste for Wine. Their wine list is limited with only about 20 offerings. Most of their wines are regional table wines with a few mid-level wine offerings. Considering their wine list, the prices at A Taste for Wine are fair with most glasses of wine ranging from $9 to $11 and most bottles of wine ranging from $30 to $40.
Like many wine bars, A Taste for Wine offers simpler food like a charcuterie platter, a cheese plate, and a few different artisan pizzas.
If you’re lucky enough to get a seat, the highlight of A Taste for Wine is their outdoor balcony overlooking Central Avenue.
