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.

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.

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.

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.
