The New York area’s only wine bar dedicated exclusively to California wines.
Who Should Be Interested:
Do you love wine? Specifically, do you really enjoy California wines? And do you live in the Brooklyn, NY area? If you said yes, then investing in California 88 might be for you. They plan to open up a wine bar dedicated exclusively to California wines in the Greenpoint area, giving people a place to taste, learn, and experience all of the different wines.
California 88 is a wine bar set to open in the late spring of 2018 in the Greenpoint Brooklyn, New York area. Right around the corner from McCarren Park, California 88 will feature exclusively California wines, and their wine program will be truly one of a kind — they will offer every bottle available by the taste or the glass. This means that customers can indulge in a rare $180 bottle of wine…at a tasting price of just $9. The goal behind California 88 is for patrons to become their own wine experts and learn what wines they most enjoy. California 88 will offer 88 California wines, be open Monday through Sunday, and offer locally-sourced, organic small plates, charcuterie, and cheeses, as well as weekend brunch. In addition to just being a comfortable and inviting place to meet some friends, the bar will also offer tasting classes, private winemaker dinners, and California wine country retreats.
The Bottom Line:
Owner Eric Hsu knows wine. He co-founded WineDirect, which is the largest e-commerce platform in the wine industry, and his entire team has deep food, wine, and hospitality experience. With that knowledge, bringing a little West coast wine love to the Greenpoint Brooklyn area is something we can all raise a glass to. Cheers!
