Beyond Boston

Wine Shop, West
The Urban Grape

If only wine bottles could talk. Instead, most languish on store shelves across the city, relying only on crumpled winemaker-written blurbs and outdated Robert Parker ratings to convey their quality and nuances. The lucky ones, however, end up at the Urban Grape, where co-owner T. J. Douglas’s genius layout groups wines based on their common characteristics, enabling customers to easily find what suits their tastes.
