Red wine drinkers of the ‘burg, specifically those who love a good Pinot Noir, can drink it up Saturday April 18 at Seminole Park in the Historic Kenwood neighborhood.
The neighborhood association is hosting its second annual “Pinot in the Park” festival from 6-9 p.m.
The festival will feature not only a premium selection of pinot noir, but a feast of Pacific Northwest-style salmon bake. Some of St. Petersburg’s best chefs will also be on hand to whip up unique side dishes.
Old Key West Bar and Grill, Sazon, Elliots of Kenwood, St. Pete Bakery, Queens Head and the Edge Lounge and Tapas are all participating. Also expected is Don Cesar executive head chef Kenny Hunsberger.
The wines will be from both California and Oregon wineries.
Seminole park is nestled in the quaint Historic Kenwood neighborhood between Third and Fourth Avenue North on 29 Street. Live music from the band House of Leros will boom from a pavilion.
Historic Kenwood continues to make a place for itself on the list of St. Pete’s most unique and sought-after neighborhoods. Just years ago the neighborhood was plagued with crime. Now it boasts some of the city’s most eclectic bungalows and rockin’ porch parties.
The neighborhood is situated just minutes from the city’s burgeoning downtown and abuts the up and coming Grand Central District. The Edge and Warehouse Arts districts are also a short bike ride down the road.
This festival is expected to highlight all that Historic Kenwood has come to offer as it continues its revitalization.
Tickets to the event are $85 each. Attendees can reserve half-tables of 4 or whole tables for 8, but there is not savings to buy in groups.
