Good Wine is a new incarnation of the wine store PicadaYVino, which was established in 2008. In 2015, Heather Johnston, a Park Slope resident and professional chef, took over the shop from its previous owners, who have moved on to other adventures.
We are child, stroller, and dog friendly. There is seating and children’s books for your kids. Welcome!
We taste wine in the shop every day. There are two goals: to let customers try new wines without having to buy them, and to help customers figure out what kinds – grapes, regions, styles- of wine they like.
The Good Wine Newsletter is monthly and will contain previews of upcoming events as well as the recipes of the foods we have paired in the previous weeks. To get this info more promptly, you can follow us on twitter, facebook, or subscribe to the blog.
Weddings and Events:
Good Wine is a food lover’s wineshop. This extends to our ability to help you with your wedding, bar mitzvah, event wine tasting, or private dinner, including managing your caterer, selecting your wine menu, and providing service people to ensure your event goes smoothly.
Heather Johnston, Good Wine’s owner, is a culinary school and wine school graduate and has both catered and run tastings since 1997. A resident of Park Slope since 1998, she has worked with many of the local event spaces including Old Stone House, has relationships with great caterers, and has created wine tasting events in private homes for families and organizations.
Weddings and Rehearsal Dinners: Planning your own wedding? We can help you maximize the quality of your wine at any budget level to create memorable pairings with your menu.
“You’re the best! It was amazing! We loved the [Prosecco] and all the other wines…We couldn’t have done it without you.” – Chutney and Levi, Wedding May 2015
Private Parties and Organizational Events: We can help you design your menu, manage or provide a caterer for hors d’oeurves or a full meal, deliver wine selections at the correct temperatures, and provide servers where needed.
Bar and Bat Mitzvahs: We can provide a wide range of kosher and non-kosher wines and coordinate with your caterer to ensure wines are served in the correct order and at the correct temperature. We can deliver to local venues such as Temple Beth Elohim the same day as your event.
“Good Wine delivered perfect wines for my menu” -Barbara B, April 2015
“The event was a grand success and the wines were fantastic” – Cathy M
Want to have a fun event and learn something about wine? We can provide tasting experiences for 4 – 60 people in which participants learn about wine based on geography (e.g. France vs. California), grapes (e.g. white wines of Italy), style (low alcohol, blends, biodynamic) and food pairings (e..g. fried chicken and champagnes). These evenings are plain language, unpretentious, and fun! and intended to help people learn about the kinds of wine they like.
We deliver for free in central Park Slope, two bottle minimum, every day until 8:30PM. We can also deliver to other parts of the city on a same day basis for a small delivery charge.
