2017 St. Pete Wine and Food Festival - Notes on 2016 festival

  • North Straub Park

    500 Fifth Ave. North, St Petersburg, FL (map)

  • If you missed the recent wine and food festival, plan on seeing an expanded event next year.

    The waterfront setting in downtown St. Petersburg draws a good crowd of chefs, vintners, distributors, and foodies to one of the best venues (Straub Park).

    This year's Grand Tastings featured Saturday and Sunday afternoon sessions. The beer and taco fest began a few days before.

    For our About the Town members who went, they enjoyed fine wines, sample fare from the area’s best restaurants, and cooking demonstrations from local chefs. (See additional photos - click on the Photo Tab on the landing page of About the Town.)

    From Sarasota (l-r) Nathan Leduc, Melissa Leduc, Diane Mellert, and Terry Bailey joined wine and food friends.

    An upscale event set in the Old Northeast area, near the Renaissance Vinoy, 400 Beach, and Moon Under Water, invites walking along the waterfront and allowed you to indulge in great food, fine art, and gourmet products.

    Ashley Hardymon and John Deer - a toast for good times.

    David, Chiquita, Mary Frank, Tanisha Brewton and Minnie Taylor at the winefest for food, wine, fun, and notable personalities in 2016.

    For 2017, you'll want to check out reservations at the The Historic Renaissance Vinoy Hotel in St. Petersburg.
