Looking for a way to break up your work week? Tune in to ABC7's Suncoast View every Wednesday morning for our weekly segment: Wine Down Wednesday...


Each week, a Chef from one of our Sarasota-Manatee Originals Member Restaurants will be kickin' it up in the kitchen with the sassy Suncoast hosts where the food's always wonderful and the company inspired.

At Wine Down Wednesday, there's always lively conversation, lots of laughter and good food, and of course, a glass of wine with friends.


Check out these recent Wine Down Wednesday segments below.
