However, if you truly want to wow that special someone, why not think outside the heart-shaped box? Join us at the Seaport World Trade Center for the 25th Boston Wine Expo. You can toast the show’s silver anniversary and your romance at New England’s biggest and best food and wine festival while benefitting Tufts Medical Center’s Summer Camp Program for Children With Disabilities.

Oenophiles will be elated to find new to this year’s event the W?ne Bar. Be sure to drop by and ask members of the Boston Sommelier Society all of your wine-related questions as well as get insight into what to expect from the industry in coming years.
