Makers: prepare to spend an evening with frame’s wine director Sean Crenny, as he takes us through a proper French Wine Masterclass.
We at frame love wine. A lot. We love thinking about it, talking about it, and drinking it. So it will come as no surprise, for our frame(makers) season, Sean has collab’d with some of the best in the biz French winemakers to create an evening with a focus on the wines of The Rhone Valley. 

In this French Wine Masterclass, Sean will walk us through (we mean drink us though) 5 wines with a solid and deep understanding of their narratives, terroirs, and a myriad of different grape varietals planted.

A native New Yorker, Sean spent most of his career rising through the ranks at Chef Thomas Keller’s NYC Restaurants, Per Se & TAK Room, curating daily wine pairings and maintaining a 2,000+ selection, Grand Award Wine List. His discipline began at The Culinary Institute of America, in both New York and California, classically trained in Culinary Arts as a Certified Sommelier. Meaning: Sean has an all-inclusive understanding of how food and wine, when paired properly, truly elevates the rapture that comes from each bite and each sip.

Taste through class with a charcuterie board from the frame kitchen designed to complement these wines, which may not have been on your radar before, but they will be after this!

We invite you in…to sip, snack, master the bottles and go home with all the expertise you need to create your perfect October wine cellar.
Feel free to think of this frame(makers) workshop as the most sincere way to use your newfound skills to Sip like a Somm.

“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!”

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“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.”
