Begin your epicurean tour at the iconic Gaslight Brasserie du Coin--a premiere French brasserie in Boston's South End neighborhood. From the moment you enter this Boston hot spot, you'll feel the laid-back atmosphere of its Parisian-style decor thanks to its gas lights, zinc bar and communal tables fit for socializing and seating large parties. You'll head to the Parisian zinc bar to whet your palate with wine samples exclusively from France, including the sweet Vignerons Buxy Bourgogne Blanc wine from the Cote Chalonnaise region of Burgundy and the bubbly Marquis de la Tour Brut Rose--parkling wine from France's Loire Valley. You'll also get to delight in delicious hors d'oeuvres like steak tartare with croutons and the garlic-seasoned mayonnaise dip known as aioli along with Spice Provence-seasoned heritage tomatoes for a perfect pairing with your all-French wine samples.

Wrap up your private wine adventure by following your guide on a short walk past Victorian townhomes donning bow fronts to the heart of South End's nightspots and art scene off Tremont Street. Here, you'll find the iconic Cinquecento Roman Trattoria--a posh, two-floor Italian restaurant decorated with wooden beams, brick and classic wine hutches with a vast collection of Italian wines that echo simplicity and customs characteristic of Roman culture. Let your tastebuds "travel" to Italy by enjoying two fine wines that deliver flinty flavors and rich notes, including wine samplings of Santa Cristina Campogrande from the Orvieto region of Umbria, Italy, and the popular Sicilian wine Gotham Project Nero d'Avola. Before heading back to your pier on your own, conclude your tour by pairing these flavorful wines with popular Italian Formaggio or cheeses like Parmigiano Reggiano and Taleggio and salumi appetizers like Bresaola and Soppressata Piccante.
