Bacco's Wine and Cheese

When the Deluca's fire happened almost a year ago I was not sure what I was going to do since I basically did all my food and beverage shopping there.  It was a block away - way too convenient no matter what others people's complaints were.  While there is construction being done on the building right now, it does not seem like Deluca's will be opening for some time.  However, most people and the neighborhood have adapted (yay Charles Street Market and Savenor's!) and the rest of us have learned to live without Deluca's, but where are the many Deluca's workers?  I found my answer tonight.

I recently had a Junior League of Boston committee meeting at Baccos Wine and Cheese.  Every day of the week (except of Sundays) Bacco has a wine and cheese tasting after work, s our group decided to take full advantage!  Turns out the general manager of Deluca's decided to take matters into his own hands and start his own shop of wonderfulness!

Tasting Table
Bacco's has a large variety of wines that is sold by a knowledgeable staff who are more than willing to make suggestions for you at a any price point.

Not only do they do wine tastings, they also offer some cheese samples that compliment the wine.  These samples aren't just random "staple" cheeses like brie (even though I do love brie): they allow you to try some of the different types that you may be hesitant to try otherwise.

In addition they offer a number of other treats like crackers, jams and dipping oils for breads, all of which seem delicious.  Bacco also works with Pigalle who prepares to-go meals that are fresh and ready for you to purchase and enjoy that evening.  Not too shabby!

Another sample being offered with the wine tasting were St. Emilion macaroons, which are out of this world and only 50 calories a piece to boot.  These are made by a man who has been making these cookies in East Boston for 60 years and donating all of the proceeds to a local boys school.  Seriously, there is no fault with these cookies.  It is worth the trip to Bacco just for these!

I am really looking forward to my next trip to Bacco.  They have just about everything you need for a quick snack, dinner or something to bring to a party.  This is a great next endeavor for our friends formerly of Deluca's, because who knows when that will be complete!
