The Urban Grape hosted a wine tasting for Boston Bloggers. It was at the store in the South End but they also have a store in Chestnut Hill. There were about 20 people there which was the prefect size for a personalized wine tasting!
This place is different from any other place I've been. The owners came up with a genius way to help people find wines they like. All the wines have a number from 1 to 10 depending on the "body" of the wine. They refer to this as "Progressive Shelving." So if you like a light white wine you can go in and look at the area with the ones. Then you can pick a wine from any country and most likely you will like it. Pretty cool right?!
So if you are bored this winter and need something fun to do indoors head over to Urban Grape! Go here to see more info on their free tastings at both locations.
I know I'll be heading back there next time I need to buy a unique bottle of wine or a gift!
Thanks TJ and Hadley for hosting us!
P.S. They sell craft beer and other stuff too!
The tasting was free but all opinions are my own!
