Wine for Winners

Restock your cellar with top picks at the Boston Wine Expo

Full_istock_000007677019small

As we can see from that new trophy on the mantel, you dominated your fantasy football league again this season.
 
Maybe it's time you test your skills to score some bigger trophies. Ones you can drink. 
 
Consider the Boston Wine Expo as Draft Day for your wine cellar.
 
Start by hitting the convention floor next Saturday or Sunday afternoon, where you'll scour 185-plus wines from around the world in search of the perfect prospects to join your home team. Just remember, old age isn't a bad thing here.
 
You'll want to rely on advanced scouting in the form of hourly seminars from industry experts to help make your picks, but nothing can substitute for seeing these drinks live in action at the mixology competition

You don't need to deal with agents, either. Using the Drync smartphone app, you can instantly look up, purchase, and arrange for delivery of every wine on exhibition.
 
And it's not just all about how robust your tannins are. It's about getting used to the spotlight, whether that's hanging out with celebrity chefs Ming Tsai and Barbara Lynch, or toasting champagne and taking home a swag bag with an upgraded tasting glass as part of the VIP experience.
 
Now you'll have something to sip out of that trophy on the mantel.
