If you are looking for a true Boston diamond in the rough, make sure to check out the Wine Bottega. The Wine Bottega is much more than your run of the mill wine shop. It is a wine shop that believes wine should be real. This essentially means that they only carry wine that is natural.
You may ask yourself what exactly is natural wine? Natural wine is essentially wine that is not made with any chemicals. This means that nothing harmful is used in either the vineyards or in the cellars. Wine sold at the Wine Bottega has no additives. It is not processed. It doesn’t have glycerin, fish bladders, or oils in it.
The Wine Bottega believes that natural wine is not only healthier but it tastes better. They encourage you to give natural wine a try. They believe you will never go back.
The staff at the Wine Bottega is amazing. They are very knowledgeable on all things wine and will answer any questions that you may have. They will help you find the perfect bottle depending on your tastes and budget. Customers have mentioned that they learned more in the Wine Bottega from its employees than they did on trips to Wine Country.
The Wine Bottega even offers free tastings in their shop’s cellar every Friday. Make sure to head on over the store between 5 and 8 pm. These unique tastings offer customers wine that they may have never heard of but also tells the story of the wine. It is both a delicious and entertaining way to spend a Friday night. The best part is the wines they feature are discounted.
The Wine Bottega has a great wine club called the Natty Wine Share. Every month they work very hard to curate 6 natural wines that can be either picked up right in store or can even be delivered. They have two different price points. The Glou Glou Club is $100 for 6 bottles a month. While the Forever Friday Club is $200 a month. This is a really fun opportunity to try many different natural wines throughout the year. It also is a nice way to stock up on great tasting wine for your personal collection.
The Wine Bottega believes that a good wine should also have a good story. They offer classes that educate their customers on the entire wine. They teach about how it was made and why it tastes the way it does. They often concentrate on a particular genre of wine or an area. For instance, in the New Perspectives class they talk about Spanish wine and how it has evolved to become even better. Contact the Wine Bottega for more information and to sign up.
The Wine Bottega is located in one of Boston’s best neighborhoods, Little Italy. It is surrounded by amazing Italian specialty stores and is bustling with tourists. Next time you are in the area be sure to stop by for a complete wine experience.
