WHEN / WHERE
The Boston Wine Expo will take place at The Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center on February 13 and 14, 2016, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. This event is reserved for ages 21+. Tickets now are on sale and available here. Weekend tickets and discount group tickets are also available, as well as dedicated trade industry hours and hotel packages.
The Seaport World Trade Center is located at 200 Seaport Boulevard in Boston, MA. For directions and more information, please visit their website.
The Grand Tasting is the main event - featuring over 200 producers and nearly 1,800 wines from around the world, oenophiles will travel through the expansive space – sans passport – swirling and sipping their way to “connoisseur” status. In honor of its milestone birthday, the Boston Wine Expo will debut a W?NE Bar where you can stop and ask members of the Boston Sommelier Society your wine-related questions as well as get a retrospective of the industry’s past 25 years and what to expect in the next 25 years. Along the way, there will be culinary attractions including bites from popular area restaurants, as well as dueling Celebrity Chef Stages with appearances by Ming Tsai, Barbara Lynch, Chris Coombs and more. There also is the opportunity to purchase your favorite wines through the Drync app which will be delivered to your doorstop with the click of a button.

A Vintners’ Reserve Lounge: gives guests a chance to spoil their taste-buds with these special gems that retail for $75 and up per bottle

Silver anniversary package: access to a special meet and greet event with the founders of the expo, access to the Grand Tasting and VIP lounge on both Saturday and Sunday, plus three educational seminar
Seminars: In honor of the 25th anniversary, this year’s seminar program will be the biggest and best yet with over 40 topics ranging from food and wine pairings, “One Hour Wine Experts,” and vertical tasting flights of the world’s most sought-after wine producers.
And, as always, sipping at this event has a special cause.

To date, the Boston Guild of Oenophilists has raised over $1.4 million for worthy causes.
