See, Swirl, Sniff, Sip, and Savor at The Boston Wine Expo


Boston’s South End neighborhood is home to many great restaurants and bars that offer exquisite wine from all over the world. Why not attend the Boston Wine Expo this February and then test what you’ve learned at Toro or Sibling Rivalry!
The event takes place February 16 and 17 at the Boston Seaport World Trade Center. The Grand Tasting will feature almost 2,000 different wines, along with food samplings and other wine related products. Some of the wineries being showcased include the Alexander Valley Vineyard from Sonoma County and Roncolato Antonio of Italy. The grand tasting also offers tens of lifestyle and food exhibitors like Brix
Chocolate and Fianco a Fianco.

Brix Chocolate specializes in chocolates to be paired with wine. Each of their chocolates has been specially blended to pair perfectly with different wines and bubbly. Fianco a Fianco specializes in different biscotti and the wines or other beverages they are traditionally paired with. This New York couple found themselves living in Genoa, Italy and developed comfort and satisfaction by exploring classic Italian cooking methods and flavors. Their first biscotti was Biscottini al Pesto and pairs well with white wine as a pre- or post-dinner treat. Now, they have expanded to ten different flavors and will be sharing their passion for Italian food at the Wine Expo. In addition to the grand tasting, seminars are also taking place and offer classes such as Wine 101 with Wine Spectator's Director of Education. In this class, you can learn how to taste wine like a pro. Gloria Maroti Frazee will teach you about
different wine styles, tasting techniques and grape varieties. This class is great for novice wine drinkers as well as seasoned wine connoisseurs. Other classes feature different cheeses, wine regions and history of wine culture. Tickets to the Grand Wine Tasting as well as the seminars can be purchased online. Visitors can choose to attend seminars alone, the Grand Wine Tasting alone or a combination of both. More information including pricing and times can be
found here.

After a long day of sipping delicious wine and tasting other fine food from all over the world, head back to our bed and breakfast and put your new education to the test! The many restaurants in the South End provide the perfect atmosphere for an initmate dinner for two or great surroundings to meet new people.
