Boston’s Best Wine Bars

Boston is known for its incredible sporting events and all the food and beer that goes with those experiences. Sam Adams might be the first drink that comes to mind when visiting Boston, but it’s time to start thinking wine. Whether you like a fruit-forward white or a full-bodied red, Boston has several great wine bars for you to check out.

If you have enjoyed eating at The Blue Room, you will love wine tasting at the Belly Wine Bar. The people who created The Blue Room and the wine and provisions store Central Bottle have opened this quirky wine bar. With a range of white and red wines, guests can choose to have a 2 or 5 ounce pour, or they can buy a whole bottle. The Belly Wine Bar offers several snacks to accompany your glass of wine and a few entrée choices for hungrier guests.


When heading out to have an evening filled with people-watching and great Italian food, stop into Piattini in Back Bay to try one of their fantastic Italian wines. Here you can choose from one of their five flights of wine or have a glass of your favorite. If you don’t have dinner plans, stay and enjoy a nice meal in this tiny restaurant. Piattini is an Italian wine bar that will make you feel as if you are actually in Italy.


Are you looking to escape the area’s Italian influences? If so, you should visit Troquet, a fabulous french restaurant and wine tasting bar. It features more than 40 wines, several of which are high-end and served in 2 and 4 ounce pours. For an extra treat, check out their first-floor dessert lounge.

The Butcher Shop

As you might guess from this wine bar’s name, vegetarians may want to avoid tasting wine at The Butcher Shop. However, this fantastic wine bar serves over 100 different varieties of wine, all of which pair nicely with the multitude of meat-lover treats. The Butcher Shop’s staff loves wine and is happy to make suggestions or tell you about any wine on the list.

Tastings Wine Bar and Bistro

If you do happen to leave your comfy Boston Hotel and head south to Foxborough for a game, you don’t have to follow the crowd and drink Sam Adams. Instead, stop by Tastings Wine Bar and Bistro for a satisfying glass of wine. Unlike other wine bars, the Tastings Wine Bar and Bistro classifies their wines as “interesting whites” or “interesting reds,” which adds to the fun of trying something new. And for the sports fan, you don’t have to worry that your wine-tasting habits will make you late to the game, as this wine bar is located in Patriot Place.

There is no doubt when visiting Boston that you can grab a great beer, but remember there are several great wine bars to enjoy in the area, too.
