When the opportunity presented itself to transform an old, run-down corner liquor store into something we had always dreamed of, we jumped on it. Franklin Cellars opened its door during the hardest-hit months of COVID-19. In face of all the challenges, we worked hard to make Franklin Cellars what we want it to be: quality, thoughtful, and inviting.
From Japan to Brooklyn, from Chile to France; for birthdays and dinner parties, for rainy days and afternoons in the park; for rosé lovers and tequila diehards, for the wine connoisseurs and budding enthusiasts alike—we offer you our best: a hand-picked selection of small-batch wines, spirits, sakes, and ciders from around the world. Almost every bottle we carry is natural, organic, biodynamic, or sustainable. As a Black-owned business, we also proudly carry Black-owned wines and feature them prominently in our store.
Located in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, we are open 7 days a week. Whether you’re looking for a specific bottle to drink and chill or want a recommendation to go with tonight’s dinner, our friendly and knowledgeable staff can help you find the bottle that’s right for you. We also have weekly outdoor wine tastings (weather permitting) and provide samples of our small batch spirit collection to help you make the right choice.
This is our story, and it has only just begun.
