In recent years, the South End has developed into one of Boston’s most vibrant, charming neighborhoods—think streets lined with Victorian brownstones and a thriving restaurant scene. Get a firsthand taste of this lively area as you explore 3 of its best bars and restaurants on this wine-centric walking tour.
Meet your guide, a attentive and charismatic wine expert, along with your intimate group of no more than 12 fellow wine enthusiasts at Gaslight Brasserie du Coin. Pull up a seat at the Parisian-style zinc bar for a tasting plate of classic French dishes, sipping perfectly paired French bottles alongside your hors d’oeuvres. Bites here might include steak tartare with croutons and aioli or heirloom tomatoes with herbes de Provence, an ideal match for a sparkling wine from the Loire Valley and a fruity Burgundy red.
From there, make your way just a short half-block down the street, moving from France to Italy as you sit down at Cinquecento Roman Trattoria. Here, sip and swirl 2 Italian varietals from regions like Umbria and Sicily as you nibble artisanal cheese and salumi, listening as your guide shares tips on identifying different flavors and aromas in each glass.
Finally, head past the charming Victorian townhouses to Tremont Street, where a private table awaits you in the Spanish-influenced restaurant and tequila bar Masa. Full-bodied wines from Spain, Chile, and Argentina and refreshing Portuguese vinho verde are the perfect accompaniments to shareable tapas like grilled chorizo, chicken taquitos, jalapeno rellenos, and albondiga picante (spicy meatballs).
