Cambridge Tastings and Events

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.

Upcoming Events

Wine Tasting: Hello, my name is…. – Thursday, July 30, 4-7pm

Hondarribi Zuri, Folle Blanche, Grolleau, and Mencia . . . how many grape varieties are used to make quality wine every year? A handful? A few dozen? A couple of hundred? The answer is more than a thousand. This being the case, we’ll wager there a quite a few you’ve never encountered before. Consider this a grape meet and greet.

Wine Tasting: I’ve got a secret… – Friday, July 31, 4-7pm

In a variation of good old Three Bottle Monte, we pour three wines – two that are exactly as they came from the bottle, one that we’ve doctored in some diabolically clever way. You tell us which one has a secret and – if you can – guess what it is. Winners receive a huge boost to their self-esteem.
