Go Global Without Leaving Downtown Bradenton!

Wines Around the World: A Tasting + Pairing Series by PIER 22

Presented by Pier 22 January 6, 2021

PIER 22 Restaurant, Patio and Catering in downtown Bradenton, a landmark waterfront-dining destination, was built with wine lovers in mind. We specialize in a wide-ranging selection of house-made dishes that emphasize fresh, seasonal ingredients with a matching wine list that has been thoughtfully cultivated in favor of quality and accessibility. We enjoy introducing our guests to labels that they may be unfamiliar with or hesitant to seek out on their own!

We invite you to join us as we take you on a tour around the world featuring our favorite wineries and light bites to complement them.

Wines Around the World: A Tasting + Pairing Series is a 4-week event held in our safe, socially distanced ballroom from January 19 through March 2, 2021.
