Assembly Row Tour on BostonGlobe.com

BostonGlobe.com featured City Wine Tours’ new tour of the Assembly Row neighborhood of Somerville!

Somerville’s Assembly Row is good for lot’s of things: manhandling bricks at Legoland, buying new clothes, indulging with ice cream at J.P. Licks, maxing out one’s credit card at Le Creuset. But a vineyard it’s not – well, until now. Sort of.

City Wine Tours has launched a two-hour walking tour of the al fresco shopping haven, complete with food pairings and six wine samples at spots like Fuji at Assembly (perhaps a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc paired with salmon wonton chips?) or Earls Kitchen + Bar (pinot gris and chicken wings, if you please). A savvy City Tours “wine ambassador” leads the procession, explaining the intricacies of each wine along the way, plus tips on how to buy your own.

The tours kick off at 3 p.m. on Saturdays, and tickets are $70. But be forewarned: You just might be tipsy enough to spend a little too much at J. Crew when it’s over. Maybe leave the credit cards at home. Visit citywinetours.com/boston for more details.
