South Shore Wine CompanyVerified Organization

A brief history

Celebrating a milestone, a major accomplishment, or just a Monday, calls for a noteworthy bottle of wine. Traditionally, you might reach for something of the bubbly variety, but a standout-yet-under-the-radar red or a satisfyingly sweet rosé can be equally festive.

Every wine that is poured in South Shore Wine Company’s stone cavern wine cellar is certifiably celebration-worthy, carrying on our region’s storied history of sparkling wine production and spotlighting a curation of interesting and emerging grape varietals that have delighted wine lovers near and far.
