Sample Sips


Vine Wine relocated to Williamsburg from Long Island City this spring, and has been pleasing Brooklyn wine drinkers with their eclectic selections from small, independent growers, an extensive selection of offbeat bubblys and an inspired $15-and-under section ever since. Saturday marks the store’s fifth annual Cru Beaujolais tasting, though the first in Brooklyn, and they will be sampling four wines: Guy Breton Morgon, Chignard Fleurie, Diochon Moulin a Vent and the Chanrion Cote du Brouilly, which is made by groundbreaking lady winemaker (the French have a word for that–vigneronne), Nicole Chanrion. Unlike super young, super fruity Beaujolais Nouveaus, Cru Beaujolais are more complex and interesting, and happen to make great Thanksgiving wines.
