JETLINE CRUISE’S “BOSTON NEIGHBOURHOODS YOU HAVE TO VISIT”

“With all that North End has to offer, don’t be surprised if you want to enjoy another sublime restaurant in the neighbourhood. City Winery offers a high-end culinary experience and is certainly one of North End’s finest offerings. Telling us about what visitors can expect, City Winery said: “We’re extremely unique in that we are a fully functioning winery in the heart of Boston. We get grapes from all of over the world to make wine right here in the city, that we serve on tap directly to our customers. They can expect great service, great food, great wine and even check out a live band as we put on 400 concerts a year in our concert venue!'”

 

Thanks to Jetline Cruise for including us in their “Boston Neighbourhoods You Have To Visit”!

Tickets & More Info

The Brooklyn-based MC earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years.

“I’m a touring artist. I’m an artist that’s internationally known. I’m not just a local artist at this point in my career. I’m cognizant of the fact that what I do is beyond where it started. I’m trying to reach the apex of where I am now, but without turning my back on or dismissing what I’ve done before.”

After nearly 20 years of releasing mesmerizing music, Talib Kweli stands as one of the world’s most talented and most accomplished Hip Hop artists. Whether working with Mos Def as one-half of Black Star, partnering with producer Hi-Tek for Reflection Eternal, releasing landmark solo material or collaborating with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Just Blaze, J Dilla, or Madlib, Kweli commands attention by delivering top-tier lyricism, crafting captivating stories and showing the ability to rhyme over virtually any type of instrumental.

In 2011, Kweli founded Javotti Media, which is self-defined as “a platform for independent thinkers and doers.” Kweli has set out to make Javotti Media (which released his 2011 album, Gutter Rainbows, and is named after his paternal grandmother) into a media powerhouse that releases music, films and books.

Happy Earth Day from City Winery Boston!

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.
