City Wine Tours, founded in 2011, is the first wine tour company of it’s kind. Our mission? To make learning about wine as fun as drinking it!
Co-founder and CEO Daniel Andrew, inspired by a wine tasting he enjoyed in Boston’s North End, sought to create a wine tour experience that anyone could access and enjoy. To do so he brought together a team including Wine Expert Wes Narron (tour curriculum), Harvard Business School Grad Rick Goldberg (business strategy), Yelp Account Exec Christian Iannucci (restaurant partnerships).
The most important decision the leadership team made? To recruit an amazing team of wine experts to lead the wine tours. City Wine Tours’ staff is a who’s who of wine experts from Boston and NYC and collectively hold every wine certification under the sun! Guests learn how to taste, pair and buy wine in a down-to-earth relaxed atmosphere! Click here to read all about this amazing group of people.
City Wine Tours gave it’s first tour in Harvard Square and quickly expanded, opening neighborhood tours in the North End, South End, Back Bay, Theatre District and Assembly Row. In 2013 the company began touring New York City in the West Village and SoHo neighborhoods. Our tours visit top-end restaurants and have gained critical acclaim in dozens of news outlets including the Boston Globe, Thrillist, Zagat and IN New York. The company’s social media reviews speak for themselves.
In addition to weekend public tours City Wine Tours curates Bachelorette Wine Tours, Corporate Wine Tours, Birthday Party Wine Tours and even in-house tastings. These events are customized to serve the needs of our groups and can accommodate groups as small as two to groups as large as two hundred.
Today the company is more dedicated than ever to make learning about wine as fun as drinking it!
