I must say that I do enjoy Wine and Beer Festivals, but they can be pricey and crowded. Here are some alternatives where you can get your fix for significantly less.
The past two Fridays a few of my friends got together to check out the free wine and beer tasting at Ball Square Fine Wines and Liquors. This might be a fun spot to check out if you are in the Somerville area. Or check your local wine and liquor stores to see if they have any events like this.
There are also many wineries that offer very low cost tastings and tours. I went to a bachelorette at Nashoba Winery. What a great way to spend the afternoon with some of your favorite ladies. Enjoy a $7 tour and tasting, bring a pic-a-nic lunch or dinner to eat on the porch overlooking the views of the orchards.
Or, if you don’t want to bring lunch or dinner, this winery has a restaurant on site, J’s if you are looking for a sit-down meal. Quaint cottage feel.
Has anyone been to any other low cost wine or beer tastings in the Boston area?
