Tonight: Virtual Wine Tasting at 5:30pm
CFSBKers Chris Modica (owner of Brooklyn Wine Exchange) and Tom Shpetner (General and manager of Franklin Turnpike) would like you to join them for a Zoom wine tasting TONIGHT at 5:30pm. Chris’s bottle shop will have a few specials on hand for you, and Tom will walk you through a quick tasting.
Feel free to pop just one cork or several, but these selections are merely a guide – Tom will be taking you through (read, b.s.’ing about) each wine, but you can surely taste whatever you have on hand. Or find similar wine(s) (New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Spanish Tempranillo, Provençal Rosé) and you’re chillin’ like a villain, since these regions have signature styles. Here’s the wineup:
- Nautilus Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019: $17
- CVNE “Cune” Rioja Crianza 2016: $14
- Commanderie de Peyrassol Cotes de Provence Rose 2019: $20
CFSBK members can call ahead for in-store pickup or call to have the wines delivered, provided that they purchase all three wines. Chris is kindly offering free delivery if you purchase the full package. Q&A plus shit-talking is sure to ensue.
Chris Modica’s Bio: “I opened Brooklyn Wine Exchange back in December 2009. The idea was not only to offer a great selection of wine and spirits, but to eventually incorporate an educational aspect to our business. About a year into opening we began hosting wine classes in the back room of our shop. And now, several years later, our classes have become an integral part of our shop. I was born in Carroll Gardens and lived here for most of my life and first joined CFSBK about 8 years ago. But for well over a year now I’ve been working with Katie Harper post knee/shoulder surgery – and she’s killing me!”
Tom Shpetner’s Bio: “I’ve been interested in food since 1968, and I’ve been collecting and enjoying wine since 1989, when I took a full-semester course (for Ivy credit!) at the Cornell Hotel School. I spent a big chunk of my career on Wall Street… but, most recently, I was a floor sommelier for the TAO Group of restaurants, having a great time connecting with guests tableside. We had the wind at our backs; KILLER service, great cuisine, fun wines, creative cocktails, and wonderful spaces. Every day, I miss the guests, the team, and now, even my sore feet. Despite the difficult things, it was immediately clear that people really need to connect… right away, friends from all around have been reaching out, asking for help, advice, and live tastings… so here we are! I’ve been a CFSBK member for 10 years.”
The tasting will take place in our regular Zoom room, which can be accessed with the password CFSBK. See you tonight!
