At the Wine Expo, you need a strategy and a spit bucket

If the prospect of thousands of other attendees at the Boston Wine Expo and 1,800 wines to sample sounds daunting, approach the 23d annual event on Feb. 15-16 as a time to increase your wine knowledge. And have a plan.

Attend one of the seminars, which many people think distinguishes this expo from others. Jim Carmody, vice president and general manager of the Seaport Hotel, and one of the Expo’s founders, says, “The seminar program is the backbone of the event.” There’s a charge for the hourlong talks (38 in all, $25 to $50 per person), which run all weekend.
