Tampa’s Museum of Science and Industry (aka MOSI) gets an adult makeover in just one night when Uncorked: Tampa Wine Fest is happening this weekend.
From 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. next Saturday, October 1, the popular museum at 4801 E Fowler Ave. will turn into a destination for Tampa Bay wine lovers.
Guests can sample over 100 wines and champagnes at the upcoming Uncorked: Wine Festival, plus access to all MOSIs interactive exhibits and planetarium shows, including its new “Dinosaurs Around the World” exhibit. Food trucks will provide meals (although the cost of food is not included in the ticket price), while local DJs will set the mood.
And if hard liquor isn’t your thing, this wine festival will also have tequila sodas, canned sangria, hard seltzers and sodas, mimosas and bellinis.
Sea Dog Cantina’s food truck will be selling its popular Mexican fare, AmazingGrazing will be providing deli spreads, Slider Guys will be offering burgers, and Charm City Eats’ seafood menu will be sure to pair with the event’s various wines.
Tickets cost between $65 and $80 and can be purchased through eventbrite.com. Early admission costs more, but it means a whole other hour of exclusive payouts from select wineries. Some of the popular wineries, breweries and distilleries that will be featured at next week’s festival include Napa Valley’s Sscattered peaks, Rosé summer water and Roth Estate Winery—in addition to the businesses of Pinellas 3 Daughters Brewing and Domain of Aspirations.
