BEST WINES BY THE GLASS: Wine Exchange

Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, Wine Exchange endured plenty of angst during the landlord snafu a couple of months ago. After closing for two weeks to work out the difficulties, it’s quite impressive that the place kept its nose to the glass, re-opening unscathed and uninhibited, with an even better wine program than before. We delight in the changing monthly wine flights, with plenty of obscure yet amazing red, white and rosé selections. The place has a way of awakening your inner wine geek, leaving you wondering how it exists in little ’ol Tampa (which, for a while there, it almost didn’t). Long live the WE.
