Today is national wine day. To celebrate, we’ll highlight three Massachusetts wine establishments you need to know about.

In Boston, there are plenty of options to indulge in your wine cravings. Whether it is pairing your favorite glass with a delicious meal in the North End or frequenting one the best wine bars. Rooftop gatherings are also popular wine spots. With the weather warming up, the city provides an excellent backdrop for a few sips at golden hour.

Furthermore, there are numerous wineries in Massachusetts. Some of these small businesses, like Nantucket Vineyard (Cisco), distribute throughout the New England region, while others remain local to New England only. Massachusetts is also the home state of operations like the Boston Showcase Company. They have a long history of designing and distributing products like wine glasses to restaurants in bulk.

In addition, it has become common for wine to be available at stadium events. Fenway Park, TD Garden, Gillette Stadium and all major concert venues offer a wine variation at their ticketed events.

Wine Industry Growth

Earlier this year, Forbes published a detailed report on the positive projections for the wine industry in 2023. “U.S. Wine Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Project,” sales of wine (domestic and imported) topped $66.97 billion, with table wines dominating, followed by sparkling wines (most domestic), whose projected sales will rise 7.7% from 2022 to 2030 and the U.S. wine market size is expected to reach USD 115.03 billion by 2030,” the article quotes.

You can locally partake in national wine day in various ways. Options include simply uncorking your favorite bottle at home, venturing out to a winery, or simply showing your support through ordering online.
