NEW BOXED WINE ALERT
Pascal Lambert Chinon 2012, $44
"Created in 1987 by Beatrice and Pascale, this 14 hectare domaine was one of the originals in the organic/biodynamic movement in the Loire. Soils are clay-limestone, gravel, and flint and grapes come primary from the area called Cravant-les-Coteaux west of Chinon. Wines are produced without the addition of yeast or enzymes. The entry level bottling is not hit with any SO2 at all."
We LOVE this earthy, mineral-rich Cabernet Franc-in-a-box! It’s meaty and dark, but medium bodied and fresh on it’s feet. Winter seems to be here, like it or not, and we heartily suggest having some wine on hand! Each box holds the equivalent of 4 bottles of wine, so stocking up is easier than ever.

NEW BOXED WINES IN THE HOUSE!
3L (the equivalent of 4 “regular” bottles) of grape juice that stays fresh and delicious for several weeks! Take a load off and lighten your carbon footprint this weekend… and fyi, these suckers are perfect for the park.
From The Tank Vin Blanc, $40
Organically grown French Chardonnay aged in stainless steel and concrete tanks. Clean, vibrant, refined and as refreshing as all get out.
Wineberry Perle de Rose 2012, $44
Classic Provencal Rose- a blend of young Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah vines. Light in color, lean and dry, with subtle hints of ripe strawberries on the palate. Totally classic pink refresher!
Fuenteseca Tempranillo Barrica 2010, $24
Barrel aged Tempranillo in a box that JUST hit the US shores! We’re one of the first shops to get this in, and we’re pleased as punch. A fuller bodied Spanish red from a vineyard that is practicing organic. With deep dark fruit and a little spice, this is a rooftop bbq no-brainer.
March 8, 2013
Wine in a box! We’re fully stocked on a new, dry Portuguese white ($20), VRAC rose ($28), Corvina ($25), and Wineberry Cotes du Rhone ($44). An eco-friendly, budget-friendly, crowd-friendly option for any night of the week.

NEW WINE ALERT!
Look at this cute BOX OF GRUNER! It’s small and mighty- 1.5 Liters of crisp and dry Austrian white (magnum sized)… that’s the equivalent of two regular sized bottles. As with all the other boxes, the wine is vacuum packed inside, so it keeps long after you’ve poured your first glass.
Summer may be drawing to a close, but it’s more pleasant than ever to be outside. Transmitter park, anyone?
August 17, 2012
The merits of boxed wine are practically endless, and include tailgating. VRAC Rose and WURTZ Riesling are both $27 bucks and in stock right now! Come and get ‘em for the beach/camping/parked truck on Franklin/boat/cabin/fridge! Also, Govino Glasses! Everyone should have a set of this classier substitute for the red Solo cup. Cute, functional, and unbreakable- 4 for just twelve bucks.
April 19, 2012
Join us tonight, 6-9 pm, for a tasting of wines in a box… and wine outside of the box, as we sip four French selections from importer Wineberry’s unique portfolio, paired with cheese from Eastern District!
Chateau de Chatelard Bourgogne Blanc
This crisp and clean boxed Chardonnay from Burgundy is a real class act. Wineberry has totally revolutionized the formerly stigmatized world of boxed wine with elegant, old-world crate-style 3 liter packages (equivilant to four bottles). And the juice inside is revolutionary as well- quality wine from small vineyards throughout France. Eco-friendly, budget concious, and delicious! $49
Chateau Real Martin Perle de Rose 2011
This Provencal Rose in a 3 liter box arrived in the shop just in time for barbecue season! There’s no way you won’t be the life of any party when you arrive with this sucker. Perle is a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, and 10% Syrah from the Cotes du Provence. It boasts notes of ripe tropical fruit with gentle acidity and firm tannins for balance. Soft enough for a spring afternoon but strong enough for whatever you throw on the barbecue. $44
Ze Bulle Zero Pointe
This is one of my current favorite bottles in the store- I can’t get enough! Ze Bulle is an all-natural sparkling Chenin Blanc from Saumur, in the Loire Valley. The grapes are hand-harvested then fermented in steel tanks using only natural yeasts. The wine is bottled early and no sugar is added in the fermentation process, so the alcohol stays low at 9.5%. Some natural fruit sugar is left behind, giving the wine a delicate sweetness off-set by a really cool bread-y quality. And the Loire terroir still shines through in a classic, minerally Chenin Blanc fashion with bracing acidity. A real joy! $17
Domaine Vico Rouge 2009
Syrah, with Niellucciu, and Sciaccarellu, varietals native to Corsica, a beautiful French island in the Mediterranean Sea near Sardinia. Although politically part of France, the culture of Corsica is blended with the island’s Italian neighbors. Domaine Vico seemingly incorporates some of the best qualities of both French and Italian reds; it’s elegant and rich, with notes of supple fruit, spicy black pepper, dark licorice, and a soft finish. Ideal with grilled meat. $22
June 3, 2011
We’re awaiting delivery of a new Provencal Wineberry box, just in time for a BEAUTIFUL weekend in Brooklyn. It’s crisp and dry with bright acidity and fresh red fruit.
And after you finish every drop (we don’t think it will take you long), construct a cute bird house from the empty wooden box!
Happy drinkers and happy birdies- life is good.

Tasting tonight, 6-9pm: Wineberry Boxes!
3 eco-friendly liters of delicious French wine… Save the world while getting tipsy.
