Tampa Theatre’s much-anticipated Winefest, creatively titled Rebel without a Cork, is coming up this weekend with a wine pairing, festival, seminar and brunch. The fundraising event is so popular, the seminar is already sold out and the pairing only has a few spots left!
Friday night starts with the Wine Pairing from 7-10 p.m. and for the first time in Winefest history, dinner will be served on Tampa Theatre’s historic stage. Guests will be treated to a delectable five-course meal by Mise en Place that is expertly paired with wines specific to each dish, provided by Augustan Wine Imports. The price is $195 per person, and is said to be unforgettable experience!
