With its historic townhomes and fashionable eateries, Boston’s Back Bay is a lure for visitors and locals alike. Learn why as you follow a charismatic guide—a certified viticultural expert—to 3 of the neighborhood’s finest restaurants, sampling their best bottles and bites on this wine-lovers’ walking tour.

Meet up with your guide and small group of no more than 12 at Legal Sea Foods, where you’re ushered into a private dining room for your tasting. Check out the restaurant’s impressive 10,000-bottle wine cellar, and then sample 2 different wines—a sauvignon blanc and a pinot noir—bottled exclusively for this fish-focused eatery. Share flavor notes with your guide between bites of lump crab cake with mustard sauce or spoonfuls of creamy New England clam chowder.

Just around the corner is your next stop, which alternates between the contemporary restaurant Post 390 and Tico, a Latin American-inspired local favorite. Learn how restaurants select the wines for their lists, and discuss ordering etiquette over mushroom flatbread and glasses from California wine country and the sun-baked vineyards of Sicily.

Finally, head to your last stop—the well-established, romantic dining room at L’Espalier. After touring the kitchen, savor tastings of Old World bottles like Spanish garnacha and a luxurious ruby port from Portugal. Paired with cheeses from the region, it’s the perfect conclusion to this delicious tour.
