A couple of weekends ago I went to the Boston Wine Expo. It was my first time going. I've wanted to go for years but could never justify spending the money. This year I didn't have to because I won 2 tickets through a contest on Jen's blog.
Rachel and I get along well because we have the same taste in wines. We both love bubbles and sweet white wines. We made sure to try all the bubbles, Pinot Grigios and Moscatos! We tried some reds too but liked the whites the most.
Alex and Ani are very smart. They had a beautiful display set up with all of their bracelets for sale. So after a few samples of wine we were in the mood to shop. We figured since we didn't buy the tickets we could spend a little on a bracelet! We asked a lady to take our photo and she was pretty drunk so they all came out a little fuzzy! Although I noticed my photos aren't much better. I'll blame that on the bad lighting and my old iPhone!
It was a fun afternoon. We easily got around to the whole expo during our time there (it was open from 1 to 5 and we got there around 1:30). It is around $90 a ticket and I definitely didn't drink $90 worth of wine. I'm not sure I would ever spend that much to attend this event as I'd rather buy a new outfit or go out for a nice dinner but it was a good time (especially for free).
I think my favorite thing was being able to try so many different types of wine from so many different countries. You had all the more common wines mixed in with more unique wines. So great variety. . . I wish there had been more food samples. We were hungry!
Have you ever been to the Boston Wine Expo?
