Blanc & Rouge

    Paul Boyer thinks wine is a little like music. The manager of Blanc & Rouge in Brooklyn likes to compare his shop to a record store: he takes a curatorial approach to his selection of fine wines, focusing predominantly on those of French, Italian and Spanish origins. Like people’s taste in music, Paul believes that everyone has his or her own preferences, and he strives to carry a range of wines at various price points and flavors to satisfy that diversity of palettes. In addition to expert advice on wine pairings and delivery all over the city (for free in the neighborhood!) Paul and his friendly staff host parties and educational tastings. Blanc & Rouge thinks of itself as a community wine shop. There is usually a bottle open and the staff is more than happy to enjoy a glass over some conversation. Ultimately the shop wants people to appreciate and experience the joys of fine wine, which, Paul explains, can be complicated—but shouldn’t be mysterious.Show lessRead more
