BERN’S WINEFEST, TAMPA, APRIL 7-14, 2019

Cape Coral Living - - Special Section -

Tampa’s fa­mous Bern’s Steak House is known for its ex­quis­ite wine cel­lar. That said, if you’re look­ing for a smaller fes­ti­val to sate your taste buds, this is it. Held at Bern’s, its sib­ling restau­rant Haven, Bern’s Fine Wines and Spir­its shop and its Epi­curean Ho­tel, the fes­ti­val boasts qual­ity wines that will blow you away. Our Picks: Sun­day’s Grand Tast­ing is by far the star event in which a se­lec­tion of im­pres­sive wines and culi­nary cre­ations from the kitchens of the Bern’s restau­rants are pre­sented. Sem­i­nars such as Cham­pagne and Oys­ters are held in the Epi­curean The­ater in­side the ho­tel and wine­maker din­ners take place at Haven. Poke into the wine shop to buy the wines you dis­cov­ered dur­ing the event. Stay: The clev­erly de­signed Epi­curean Ho­tel, part of the Bern’s fam­ily, sits across the street from the steak house. With its wall of wine corks and over­sized forks for door han­dles, the ur­ban ho­tel is stylishly themed and lo­cated in Tampa’s SoHo (South Howard Av­enue) en­ter­tain­ment dis­trict. bernssteak­house.com
