Wine Store Opening in One Brooklyn Bridge Park


A new business called Waterfront Wines & Spirits is scheduled to open in a ground-floor space at One Brooklyn Bridge Park tomorrow. The wine shop is on the north side of the building, close to the Joralemon Street intersection. The space was still being set up on Saturday, as the photo above shows, but its proprietors said the shelves would be stocked by Tuesday. Here’s the mission statement: “We specialize in wines and spirits from small, artisanal producers from around the world. Our selections highlight classic production methods, including organic, biodynamic, and natural wines made in accordance with local traditions.” No doubt many of the condo’s residents will welcome the addition.

  • “No doubt many of the condo’s residents will welcome the addition.”

    Sure, no Chateau Lafite here. Why buy a French Burgundy or Bordeaux that’s been made from the same land the same way for hundreds and hundreds of years when you can buy some ‘biodynamic’ fermented grape juice?

  • Actually, most bordeaux winemakers are not at all making wine the same way as years ago… hence the vast improvement in quality….. One BB residents lucky —- this store, plus Heights Chateau on Atlantic and Montague Wines near Hicks….

  • You should probably read my old book, The Battle for Wine and Love or my new book Naked Wine (http://www.amazon.com/Naked-Wine-Letting-Grapes-Naturally/dp/0306819538/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1320698625&sr=8-1) to find out that there is no such thing as biodynamic fermented wine. There is only biodynamic viticulture. Certified biod wine is a different thing and doesn’t refer to fermentation. But also, more to the point inside is why people are so excited about more stripped down natural wine. And by the way, some terrific Bordeaux and Burgundy are made this way. Without yeast, enzymes, tannins, acids, defoaming agents, chips, MOX or reverse osmosis. Natural is far from new. And what’s inside these bottles, well, think about breaking the 4th wall in acting.
