Entertain Like a Sommelier
(everything you need to know about holiday wine)
frame’s wine director
The frame(makers) series point of view is that a desire for knowledge outweighs a desire for things — Thanksgiving. Hanukkah. Winter Solstice. Christmas. New Years. Power Entertaining. Gift Giving. To get us ready for all of it…
we’ve tapped our very own wine director Sean Crenny for a crash course on entertaining like a sommelier, teaching us everything we need to know about holiday wine this year.
Bring your most thirsty self and burning questions: ever stood in front of 100 bottles and wondered which big red has the intensity of flavor, acid, and tannins to match a fall feast. Or which white to buy to complement your perfectly brined bird. Pondered what’s the best sparkling to bring as a guest.
Sean will share his secrets on which bottles he entrusts for entertaining, and why knowing the “story behind a bottle” can turn most options into amazing wine gifts. Learn Sean’s best practices for serving, savoring, and understand why the right (or wrong) wine glasses make a difference.
Remember, the intention of this season is to put you, our frame guest in the frame(makers) seat.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
