    About Cinquecento: At 500 Harrison Ave. Enjoy a sampling of salumi and formaggio with two wines from the all-Italian wine list, meant to reflect Roman roots, custom, and simplicity. A leisurely stroll past the bow-fronted, Charles Bulfinch-designed Victorian townhouses, brings you to Tremont Street, the heart of the neighborhood’s art scene, nightspots, and our final destination.

    About Masa: Here, Southwest meets the South End. For over a decade Masa has been been spicing up the palates of Boston’s most sophisticated diners and serving up libations to the hip bar crowds from the South End, Back Bay, and Theater District. Masa’s menu pairs a carefully selected wine list with the flavors and cooking styles of a Southwestern kitchen.

Overall, our guide was great and I learned some new things about wine that I didn’t previously know from other tastings I’ve done.
