What You Can Expect

Back Bay Wine Tasting and Walking Tour

Wine Tasting

Meet your guide and small group in the Back Bay to begin your discovery of the area's finest wines. With advanced certification in viticulture, your guide will entertain you with information about wine history and wine selection amid Boston’s thriving culinary scene. You’ll find that learning about wine is as much fun as drinking it!

After admiring the beautiful architecture and urban design of the neighborhood, your group will first enjoy Legal Seafoods in Park Plaza. Home to a 40-page wine list and an award-winning wine cellar, the establishment holds more than 10,000 bottles of wine and 800 different labels in a comfortable lounge located three fathoms below ground. Here, you'll see the owner's private wine collection and sample two wines made exclusively for the restaurant. Enjoy exquisite food pairings as you determine which wine pairs best with fresh seafood.

Sample pairing: 
  • Manawa Marlborough New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
  • DeLoach Block 1950 California Pinot Noir
  • Jumbo Lump Crab with Mustard Sauce or New England Clam Chowder
Continue your tour at one of Back Bay's centers for haute cuisine, determined by tour. You'll be guaranteed to enjoy more delicious wines and elegant food pairings as your expert guide discusses the art of pairing, tasting, and purchasing fine wines.

Your tour will conclude at the second stop by 5pm, at which time you'll be ready to continue exploring Boston's most upscale neighborhood and put your new knowledge to the test at any one of the area's fine wine shops.

Enjoy every minute of this experience, Roz was truly knowledgeable in her wines. she was very sweet and got the job done. Learned a lot of new things about wines both red and white. I do think it was a bit pricey for only 2 restaurants and wine store.....think there should be more like 4, even three with the end being desert wines with desert to help close up the tour.......

Raz was great! Learned a lot and tried some great wines! Given this was Italian wine based, there were more red wines than white - only suggestion would be to even it out a bit more.

Other than that, it was a great day! Gave it to my mother as a gift for Christmas and she loved it. Good snacks and a good time.
