Andrea Bough doesn't want her shop's events to be formal or intimidating. At her year-old Brookside boutique, the efficiently named Wine, the point is comfort. "We just want people to be able to sit around a table and talk and then get up and go to the bar to try a wine when they're ready," says Bough, a real-estate lawyer. Beneath the street-level storefront of the space once occupied by Cellar & Loft, she has carved out a chic space for tastings, with minimalist wood shelves against the basement's exposed stone. Each Friday, she stocks the rich oak bar with four wines chosen by second-level sommelier Jenni Cossey (formerly of the American and J.P. Wine Bar). And now that Wine has its by-the-drink permit, you have license to linger.
