The only thing better than drinking wine is drinking wine in the company of other passionate wine lovers. I am excited to announce that I have discovered such a wine watering hole in my very own backyard. With their great selection of wine, reasonable prices (most less than $20), and helpful staff, New Tampa WineStyles offers a local hotspot for wine lovers to get together, enjoy a glass of wine, and have a great time.

At last Thursday night�s Wine Tasting Event, Troy and the welcoming staff from WineStyles were friendly, attentive and entertaining. They offered a range of knowledge appealing to wine connoisseurs and those new to the world of wine alike.

The tasting flight for the evening consisted of generous (and often multiple) pours of the following wines:

Axis Cellars Napa Meritage
Milo Valpolicella Italy
Laguna de la Nava Reserva Tempranillo 1999
I�M (Isabel Mondavi) Chardonnay 2004
Milo Soave Italy
Bridgeview Oregon Blue Moon Riesling



My favorite of the night was the Axis Cellars Napa Meritage. It needed to open up when it was first corked but once it relaxed it released all of its magnificent plum and tannin beauty. Being impressed with the Axis Meritage, I decided to take home a bottle of Axis Cabernet as part of an experiment in comparison.

You can be sure to find me at this and other fun New Tampa WineStyle�s events.

Nice to know for next time in Tampa. Must try to start something like a wine lovers night here in Central NY.

That sounds like a wonderful time. The last wine tasting I attended was the one I stumbled into at Trader Joe's a couple Saturdays ago. There were 4 or 5 of us at this little stand in the wine section and a little lady pouring wine and beer...I need to get out more:)
