Wine and Dandy

Like Goldilocks, you choose the size you want at a new Beacon Hill wine bar. At Bin 26 Enoteca, wine pours come in three sizes: a 100-milliliter glass, a 250-milliliter carafe, or a 500-milliliter container, the equivalent of two-thirds of a bottle. At this Goldilocks of a wine bar—there’s a restaurant, too—you decide which one is just right. Don’t be put off by the flip descriptions or even the higher-end entries on the wine list, as there are deals. Try the only Portuguese wine, a white vinho verde that’s crisp and perfect with appetizers, or the Mano a Mano tempranillo from Spain. Both are 2005 vintages, one of the best European wine years on record.
