What you can expect
The historic North End − Boston’s oldest quarter − is also home to the city’s Little Italy, making it the perfect place for a wine tour focused on Italian vintages and varietals. Sip and dine your way along the waterfront with a small group of like-minded oenophiles and a friendly expert as your guide.
Enjoy handmade pasta, New England-sourced seafood and local organic ingredients in one of Boston's most historic districts. Sip a glass of bubbly prosecco, nibble on artisanal cheeses and charcuterie, and pick up tips from your guide on deciphering the regions, varietals and vineyards on an Italian wine label.
From there, pass the historic Old North Church and make your way past the lively restaurants of Hanover Street on your way to one of 2 different Italian gems—Artu or Rigoletto. Both offer the perfect ambience for savouring Italian wines paired with delectable northern Italian delicacies. Swirl and sniff whites and reds from Sicily and the golden hills of Tuscany, and delve further into the characteristics of the different wine-growing regions of Italy between bites of bruschetta with broccoli rabe or calamari frittata with mushroom torte.
