STRB Recommendations: Boston Winery

The Boston Winery is a hidden gem in Dorchester Massachusetts. It is located beside Venezia restaurant in a Civil-War era building. The winery is run by Ralph Bruno and his goal is to “share his knowledge of making superb wine and to teach others how to enjoy this experience.” Every Saturday afternoon the winery is open to tastings and tours. For only $10 you receive 3 tokens that can be exchanged for glasses of wine, and a tour of their facilities. 

Boston Winery Door

Tours run every half hour, you can arrive anytime between 1pm and 6pm . The winery is not big so the tour is only about 10 minutes. If your tour guide asks any questions make sure to be the first to answer! The guides hand out extra tokens throughout the tour. They do a great job of explaining their process of creating the wine.  Contrary to popular belief they do not crush the grapes with their feet.

Boston Winery Barrells

The tasting room offers about 5 different wines. I went with a friend so between both of our tokens we tasted them all. Red, white, and sparkling are included in each tasting, chances are they will have a wine for you.  Handmade pizzas are available in the tasting rooms. Make sure to be the first to grab a slice, the pizza is for everyone participating in the tasting.

Boston Winery Drinks

The winery is only a short drive away from many of our properties. If you are staying with us on a Saturday make sure to stop by, and let us know what wine you tasted! I highly recommend the Sparkling Brachetto and The Black Dog Cabernet Sauvignon.

This week’s testimonial comes from one of our family vacationers!

 

Marci (16 E. Springfield Street – October 2015) – Family Vacationer

Unit 5 Living Room w Kitchen in Background


“Our stay at Unit 5 East Springfield in the South End was not only EXACTLY as it was described to us over the phone and internet, but exceeded all of our expectations. We only stay at high-end hotels, have elevated standards (and I’m a total clean freak) and we were pleasantly surprised. This was our first experience staying in a “non-hotel”, but we were here for 10 days to visit our kids in school. We chose Short Term Rentals over Airbnb or VRBO because we didn’t want to live in someone else’s house with clutter and “things”. We wanted a clean, hotel-feel in a rental property, in a cozy, at-home setting. Scott, my point person, was especially helpful and receptive. I needed a few minor items addressed and he responded immediately and was a pleasure to work with. The roof-top deck with bar-b-que grill was well worth the couple of flights of stairs! I can’t wait to book our next stay with Short Term Rentals and maybe even try another property and get to learn a new neighborhood in Boston. Kudos to a great team!”

Thanksgiving is always a lot of fun in Boston, but it always requires more effort than most of us ever expect. If you are planning on visiting the city around Turkey Day, but would prefer to spend time seeing the sights versus slaving away in the kitchen and spending hours with a bird, we recommend taking a look at Boston Chef’s.com. Here you will be able to to check out what some of Boston’s best restaurants are planning to serve for Thanksgiving 2014.

“Wicked Free WiFi” is wicked awesome!

 wickedfreewifi


These days everyone has smartphones and the 4G network is usually fast enough to handle the needs of even the most hardcore data users. However, with many cell phone companies putting an end to unlimited data it’s nice to be able to enjoy free WiFi when you’re out and about, or even use your computer in places like Boston Common. In an effort to make everyone’s lives easier, the City of Boston continues to expand its “Wicked Free WiFi” program. Click HERE to get more info. as well as a map of the various active WiFi hot spots.
