This Saturday, April 18 from 5-7pm at the Brooklyn wine store, we are happy to welcome Alie Shaper, founder of Brooklyn Oenology to pour her Social Club White 2007. Brooklyn Oenology is a company based in Williamsburg/Greenpoint that sources grapes from the North Fork of Long Island for its wine. Her 2007 Social Club White is 100% chardonnay fermented in stainless steel that is finished by brief aging in oak. A delightful wine with crisp citrus and apple notes that mingle with vanilla and a hint of smokiness on the finish. No wonder it won a bronze at the 2008 New York Food and Wine Classic.
In tribute to the borough in which her company is based, Alie uses local artists to create her labels. Shown is the work featured on the Social Club White 2007, “The New” by Malin Abrahamsson, a swedish transplant who graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 1998. More of Malin’s work can be viewed here.
