The business been open since August of 2010.
The wine bar and shop on MacDill Avenue opened two years ago, and has become known for its small production wines. They've also started serving brunch. Now, Cru Cellars is using its outdoor space as a wine garden, allowing patrons to sip wine and chat under umbrella tables or host private parties. Outdoor spaces at local businesses are rare in south Tampa, setting the business at 2506 S. MacDill Avenue apart from others when the wine garden opened in September.
