Wine Poetic

An unfiltered lens into the life and work of a noteworthy poet paired to a wine from the same country of origin.

When

Friday, June 16 | 7:30 - 9:30 PM

Where

&Holiday, 67 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014

Wine Poetic, in essence, is the confluence of wine, poetry and history. Entitled as a play on words that speak to the origins of these interconnected worlds, 'Wine Poetic' is a new workshop series that hones in on site-specific wine and poetry through a historical and poetic lens.During each session, the life and work of a noteworthy poet (either living or dead) will be discussed and workshopped alongside an accompanying wine and winemaker who share the same country of origin. By experiencing the two in tandem, we invite an opportunity for their shared pathos to not only be better understood, but more deeply felt.

(The accompanying wine will be revealed the night of. Each ticket includes 1 glass of the featured wine.)

Jackie Braje, Brooklyn-based poet and COO of PSNY, will be leading the workshop in tandem with &Holiday's Director of Hospitality, Darby Wagner, a fellow writer and creative in her own right. Reading from his Selected Poems and I Have More Souls Than One, the magic of quotidian minutiae and the theater of multiple personas may indeed unfold as richly as a glass of complexly layered wine.

The program will include conversational presentations and discussions around:

  • The featured wine and winemaker, and the invisible threads that connect this particular wine to the poetry of the evening;
  • A lens into the life and work of Fernando Pessoa;
  • Readings from a selection of Pessoa's poetry;
  • Writing prompts and an open floor segment;
  • Group Q+A's

For the evening, bottles of the featured wine will be 20% off. 

Bar snacks will also be available for purchase.

Feel free to bring a journal and writing utensil, however, &Holiday will provide paper and pens for those in need!
