I went out with a few clients last week. One of them is a huge wine fan, so along with our steaks we had several really awesome bottles of wine. And it made me realize, I have a lot more to learn. As much as I love chateauneuf du pape, I should probably branch out a little. So, I figured I'd remind everyone that the Boston Wine Festival is only about a month away.
The 24th Annual Boston Wine Festival kicks off on Friday, January 11th at the Boston Harbor Hotel with a Grand Opening Reception – where the wine will, of course, be flowing! With the holidays coming to a close, yet three long months of bitter, cold weather remaining, the Boston Wine Festival is the ideal way to lift winter spirits. Encompassing a 12-week long series of intimate wine dinners, brunches and receptions, each event is hosted by some of the world’s most distinguished winemakers. Chef Daniel Bruce, internationally recognized for his wine and food pairings, brings the top wineries from Italy, France, Portugal, Chile, Oregon, Washington and Sonoma and Napa Valley to the heart of Boston each winter.
The festival offers guests - wine connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike - the opportunity to meet with, learn from and sip vintages with some of the world’s most influential winemakers. Ideal for an evening out, a festive brunch or a winter getaway, the Boston Wine Festival has a pairing for every palate.
