BEST WINES BY THE GLASS (PINELLAS): A Taste for Wine

The owners of A Taste for Wine, Rochelle and Erin, rock. Their taste in wine is impeccable. Their sense of wine trends, right on. The 20-ish unique selections by the glass continually change, and they’re accompanied by an expertly chosen bottle list of over 300 (also available retail). With evening specials, live music and even salsa lessons, the place feels like the neighborhood corner bar, cool and relaxed, reflecting the personalities of the two vibrant ladies who have babied it over 14 years. If you’re in the ’Burg, check out their expanded lounge space, sip some interesting wine on the balcony overlooking Central and enjoy some of the best people-watching St. Pete has to offer. 241 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, 727-895-1623, tasteforwine.net
