Events

As always our regularly scheduled tastings are held on Thursday and Fridays from 5-8, and on Saturdays from 2-5. “UGSe” designates that the tasting is held at our South End store (“UGCH” denotes our former Chestnut Hill location).

If you’ve never been to a free tasting at UG (or even if you have!), watch the video below to see what makes our free tastings so fun and informative.
