Fête du Vin Tampa
November 8 @ 5:00 PM - November 13 @ 7:00 PM
Fête du Vin Tampa, hosted by Cru Cellars, is a wine celebration spanning South Tampa and Downtown. From November 8th through November 13th there will be wine dinners, classes, and parties that culminate in the Grand Tasting downtown. Tickets go on sale on September 1st, 2021.
This is the first annual Fête du Vin Tampa for Cru Cellars. Having seen strong demand for wine tastings and classes coming out of 2020, the wine bar & restaurant had a vision for a grand wine festival. “With our expansion to Westshore Marina, and the upcoming Bouzy Champagne Bar at Hyde Park Village, we saw an opportunity to coordinate wine experiences at all four of our locations to create a fun event for Tampa,” says Jen Bingham, owner of Cru Cellars.
Cru Cellars’ original location, opened in 2010, will have a four-course wine dinner with Oregon winery, Ken Wright Cellars, hosted by Ken’s son, Carson Wright. Cru’s second location, in Armature Works, will host a Quintessa blending class and a Champagne class in the Show & Tell space. The newest Cru Cellars location at Westshore Marina will put on a different wine dinner featuring the top producers from Beaujolais. Sunset cocktail classes on the Marina Point docks will also be offered twice throughout the week.
The Bouzy Bubbles Party will be at the elegant Hyde House in Hyde Park Village on Friday, November 12th. This location is directly above where the future champagne bar will open in the coming months.
The finale of Fête du Vin Tampa is the Grand Tasting. Taking place on Saturday, November 13th, it will be one of the first exclusive events taking place in the Water Street Tampa neighborhood.
Guests will enjoy food, live music, and over 120 wines amidst sweeping views of downtown from the 20th Floor Penthouse of Thousand & One in Water Street Tampa.
Tickets can be purchased at FeteduVinTampa.com starting September 1st. A percentage of proceeds will be donated to support Feeding Tampa Bay.
