Happy Earth Day from City Winery Boston! Here are a few green facts about City Winery’s winemaking!
80% of the wine we produce ends up in our tap program.
Our tap wines are low in sulfites and do not go thorough fining or heavy filtration, these are all natural beauties!
Therefore, our tap wines produce less waste (no glass, cork or labels neeeded) and are GREENER!
During harvest, our stems and skins, commonly referred to as “must,” go on to live another life! We either pass them on as compost, or hand them over to a neighboring distillery to be made into something yummy like Grappa!
Our kegs have quick turn-around and are easily cleaned, providing a reliable and reusable container for our wines.
The lees (residual or dead yeast that rests in the bottom of some barrels) that is pulled from our wines is given to our City Winery kitchen to be used for making our famous flatbreads.
The grapes we source come to us in reusable bins that are rinsed and cleaned after we press the grapes, and sent back to their homes in California, Washington and Oregon.
Michael grew up in New England with a passion for the art of music and food. He pursued his love of culinary and became a Sous Chef early in his career. Eventually he realized he wanted to wear jeans and a black hoodie to work everyday so he quickly changed gears and pursued a career in music. Michael graduated from Northeastern University with a degree in Music Industry. He’s worked at venues throughout Boston and Philadelphia booking local talent and upcoming artists. Michael is excited to be working at City Winery, being able to book talent in both the Main Concert Venue and Haymarket Lounge. Fun fact: his favorite holiday is April Fool’s Day and he had the opportunity to tour internationally while he was managing a band.

City Winery Boston was happy to be a part of Eat Your Words: A Tasting Event To Benefit 826 Boston on Monday, March 26th. The event was presented by Ruberto, Israel & Weiner, The Boston Restaurant Group and Restaurant Trends.
Every ticket purchased to the Eat Your Words event supported 826 Boston, a nonprofit youth writing and publishing organization that empowers traditionally underserved students ages 6-18 to find their voices, tell their stories, and gain communication skills to succeed in school and in life. The organization was founded in 2007. The event raised $42,000 to donate to 826 Boston!
