Like your wine with a side of art? Franklin Street Works is hosting “Wine and Time,” a talk about the relationship between time and wine on 1/19/12 from 5:30-8:30 pm. It all goes down in their cafe…yes, cafe! We’ve gotta check out this spot. Shh, don’t worry, your host for the night, Anatoli Levine, will have different wines available for you to try. Anatoli is the oenophile (holy crap, spelled that right on the first try) behind Talk-A-Vino, a must for the grape obsessed.
This little snippet from Franklin Street Works FB page explains the gist of things: ”Time is wine’s friend and foe. Wine needs time to evolve from a fermented grape juice to an irresistible nectar, capable of soliciting a range of sensory responses. When neglected, wine can spoil; and when crafted with a watchful eye to the clock, wine can transcend the processes involved in its making. Wine and time have developed a complex relationship during the past eight thousand years, and this relationship continues to expand.”
Please make sure to RSVP and let firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re coming along. It’ll make it easier to plan things out for them, but they do say you last minute loafers are still welcome. ;)
While you’re there check out how well it jives with their latest exhibition: Slipstreams: Contemporary Artistic Practice and the Shaping of Time. You’ll be able to check it out during the tasting. At Franklin Street Works there’s always something fun going on, so make sure to check back with them and follow them on FB for event invites.
