The Best Wine Bars in Your City: Boston

The Best Wine Bars in Your City: Boston

wines-by-the-glass_400_01Boston may not have as many wine bars as other cities of its size, but what it lacks in quantity, it more than makes up for in quality. Here are a few of our favorites.

Best Neighborhood Bar: The Butcher Shop: This cozy neighborhood wine bar is also a full-service butcher shop, a tribute to Old World European boucheries. Stop by on your way home for a glass of Italian, Spanish or French red paired with house-made charcuterie.

Best Bar for Novices: Piattini: The comprehensive list is complemented by the Piattini Wine Education Program, in which each wine is delivered with a card detailing the region, characteristics about the wine, and other interesting facts.

Best Romantic Bar: Troquet: If you’re looking to impress, look no further. Impeccable service, a menu so short and a wine list so long that you know it has to be French and delicious.

Best Bang for your Buck: Barcelona Wine Bar: Spanish-focused wine list with by-the-glass prices in the reasonable range of $7-11 per glass. If you’re up for pairing some tapas with your Rioja, their small plates are also reasonable, $5.50 to $10.50, and scrumptious.

Most Eclectic Wine List: Belly Wine Bar: With a wine list divided into sections by adjectives such as nervy, shapely and towering, you know you’re getting into something interesting. The vintage Cake lyrics don’t hurt either.
