Love Amy Poehler's New Wine Movie? Visit Her Brooklyn Wine Shop
Amy Poehler and friends' Wine Country debuted on Netflix this weekend, and it has us dreaming of taking our own girls' trip to the Napa Valley! But fortunately for us East Coasters, there is a much more affordable way to drink like Poehler and the crew for a long weekend-a trip to Brooklyn. Yes, really! Last November, Poehler and several friends she met working on the set of Wet Hot American Summer-Amy Miles and Mike Robertson-opened a wine shop in the Park Slope area, Eater NY reports.
Whether you're looking for an impressive full-bodied red for your next dinner party or the best $10 rosé for watching The Bachelorette, the wine shop, called Zula Wine & Spirits, aims to have what you need. And someone knowledgeable (likely Robertson) is there to help you find your perfect vino.
The shop sells wines and spirits from all over the world-France, South Africa, Chile and New Zealand to name a few. Zula also offers some local and American wines and craft spirits. Plus, we are just dying to try out their organic and biodynamic selections!
Zula offers free local delivery, but we think you'll want to come in to enjoy the free nightly wine tastings. It's unlikely you'll get a Poehler sighting as she spends most of her time in L.A., but according to Eater NY, she does pop in the store when she's in the Big Apple to try out Robertson's latest picks. Poehler's favorite is grüner, a dry white wine grown almost exclusively in Austria. Zula offers six different varieties-all under $25-according to their website.
