Our already favorite wine shop is poised to make an even bigger name for itself this year. About six months ago, UG stepped up its activism game with its new Urban Community program. Each month, the store hooks up with a local nonprofit (Rosie’s Place, The Second Step, United South End Settlements) to help expand their outreach, awareness, and fundraising efforts (via proceeds from wine sales). And in Fall 2017, UG is publishing its first book, Drink Progressively, an amalgam of approachable wine-drinking lessons, food pairings from Nantucket’s Straight Wharf, and family recipes from owners Hadley and TJ Douglas. We say: Drink deep.
