We regularly welcome artisan producers to our store to sample out their delicious goodies – from cheese, to ice cream, to beer, to wine, to tea – and more! We also periodically host cookbook signings. And, Patti of On the Edge Knife Sharpening joins us generally once per month to tune-up folks’ knives.
A schedule of these events is below, and reservations are not necessary. If you are interested in events at our Boston store, please view the South End Tastings and Events page.
Please note that during wine tastings, customers are welcome to a 15% discount on cases of featured wines. For any events involving tastings of beer or wine, we validate legal age of our participants.

Last week’s new arrivals tasting got snowed out, so you have another chance to try some of our latest additions.
Like Presidential candidates, the new wines just keep coming on. The difference? New arrivals have something fresh and valuable to say each time. So let’s give them the podium and see what happens. Candidate Meinklang Somlo will address the Hungarian question. Should be interesting.
