When: Saturday March 22, 2014
Where: Cyclorama, Boston
I am a big fan of wine, wine tastings and/or any wine event. When I saw a deal on Gilt City for this spring wine fest I had to purchase it. This event is smaller than the wine expo I attended in February. You don’t get a wine glass, the lines are longer but there are plenty of wine samples, a DJ, and some food samples.
The cyclorama is an interesting building, I’ve been there for other events. It is located in the South End next to The Beehive, a fun bar/restaurant.
I recognized some of the brands that I like and I was introduced to some new brands. I enjoyed most of the wines but we didn’t stay too long due to the long wait at some tables. This type of wine event doesn’t allow for long conversations with the winery because there are fewer tables and long lines. If you decide to hold a conversation with the representative, you are holding up the line.
Some wineries were pouring the samples to people waiting in line, a brilliant idea!
After the wine fest we went to Eastern Standard near Fenway Park. Eastern Standard is one of my favorite places to get foods and cocktails, they have a nice menu. I had my favorite drink the gimlet.
We also had some oysters
Our last stop for the evening is another favorite, Sonsie on Newbury St. We had a nice dinner. I love their artwork.
