Why raise just 1 glass of bubbly when you can have 6? Sip your way through historic Harvard Square on this expert-led tour, where the focus is all about—you guessed it—sparkling wine. Sample varietals from around the world at 3 different restaurants, nibbling perfectly paired appetizers along the way.
Meet your group and guide, a wine ambassador with an advanced certificate in viticulture, at your first stop—Nubar, housed in the grand 1920s Sheraton Commander Hotel. This modern lounge has a roaring fireplace, so cozy up for your first round of tastings. Learn how champagne is made as you sip a rosé Spanish cava and a California sparkling wine, accompanied by 3 different New England cheeses with fruits, nuts, honeycomb, and quince paste.
Set down your flutes and step outside, making your way through the elegant campus to Osushi, a Japanese restaurant where the attentive waitstaff brings out fresh plates like maki rolls or sashimi. Your table in this clean and elegant setting is the perfect place to learn about different types of sparkling wine and how restaurants craft their lists as you sample Italian prosecco or brut West Coast bubbles.
Finally, make your way down red brick paths to the Russell House Tavern, known for its seasonally inspired dishes and all-American wines, where 2 tastings of made-in-the-USA bubblies bring your tour to a perfect close.
