The Wine Bottega: Reconnecting Over a Wine Tasting-

If you are a member of any sort of alumni group, then bringing everyone together with a private wine tasting is a great social activity. Allowing members to reconnect while discovering some fantastic new wines. In Boston, I had the privilege of attending a private wine tasting at the Wine Bottega, which was organized for my sorority’s local alumnae in the Boston area.

The Wine Bottega is a small wine shop located in Boston’s North End. Although the shop is small in size, the Wine Bottega carries a large variety of wine. In fact, they focus on small production and hand crafted wines which is one of the reasons the Wine Bottega was named one of the top U.S. natural wine shops by Food and Wine Magazine. Wine tastings are held downstairs in the tasting room, which has the feel of a collector’s private wine collection with the room’s dark wood beams and dim lighting with a large wooden table in the center of the room.

The store’s proprietor, Kerri Platt, is incredibly passionate about her craft. Kerri leads the wine tastings herself and imparts knowledge not only about each wine but also general questions like the emerging trend of boxed wines. The environment is relaxed as participants sip on wine, nibble on cheese and crackers, and converse easily about shared connections, which is why this is a perfect social event for an alumni event.

The Wine Bottega is located at 341 Hanover Street in the North End, Boston, Massachusetts.

I suggest you tell your groups director to contact The Wine Bottega if you reside in the Boston area, or do some research and locate something as fantastic in your area of the country!
