2013 Boston Wine Expo Preview

Every February the city emerges from its winter cocoon and welcomes what I've come to regard as one of the first, early signs of spring-the Boston Wine Expo. Joining together almost 200 wineries this annual event serves to educate and expand the horizons of the novice wine drinker to the experienced oenophile. Between the seminars held yearly, the lively discussions created and the ability to taste over 1800 wines, this is the event to attend.

Of course, it's not just October, so why am I discussing an even that doesnt take place for another 5 plus months? Quite unabashedly, I'm pumping you up-do you feel pumped up? This years Boston Wine Expo promises to be the best one yet, with wineries celebrating their anniversaries by pouring from their vintage stock, rumors of a rare Port pouring (my personal favorite), a much improved Mobile App allowing users to find their favorites to purchase before and after the show, and a Social Media lounge keeping those of us Twitter happy for the duration of the event.

I was able to attend a preview event and had the opportunity to taste some amazing wines there-I know that this years event will be one to be sure to attend. Over the next couple of months I'll bring you the news as it transpires, some discount ticket codes (stay tuned) and maybe even a free pass-Get ready folks- 5 months and counting!
