Best of Boston

2013 Best Wine Bar

Belly Wine Bar

The regions, the varietals, the vintages—the world of wine can be intimidating. Not at Belly, where the eclectic by-the-glass list is organized around lighthearted headings (like the Grease-themed “Pink Ladies” for rose, and “Beauty School Dropout” for chilled reds) that belie expertly chosen selections from co-owner and wine director Liz Vilardi. Here, you learn, wine can be fun—and anything but fussy.
