Exploring The Wines Of Copper Cane
Saturday November 9, 6-8PM
Host: Sophie Daniels

A Sit down wine tasting/educational event held in the Franklin Liquors wine room.
RSVP $5 Event Fee

Joseph Wagner is a fifth generation Napa Valley winemaker with a dedicated passion for the business. Joe’s roots in the winemaking began at an early age. His family founded Caymus Vineyards in Napa Valley.

In 2001 at age nineteen, he rolled up his sleeves and has yet to look back. His passion and natural talent for winemaking quickly became apparent after he started his own award-winning single vineyard Pinot Noir label, Belle Glos.

In January 2014, Joe formed Copper Cane Wine & Provisions, with the goal of focusing on innovations that have always captured his interest, and to find new ways to offer the highest quality products that satisfy consumers’ appetites for genuine craftsmanship.

We will explore sparkling, Pinot Noirs, Blends And Cabernet Sauvignon

About Sophie
With a passion for food and wine, Miss Daniels found herself drawn to the beauty and bounty of food and wine at an early age. What began as cooking for friends and family at the age of 7 eventually progressed into working for fine dinning establishments and highly regarded catering companies in Boston in the early nineteen nineties.

Attracted more and more to the art of superb wine and food pairings, Sophie was given the opportunity to focus on wine sales while working for a prominent Massachusetts distributor in 2001.

Beginning in 2004 and up until today, Sophie Daniels has had the unique opportunity to explore the world, expanding her wine horizons, while representing domestic and imported wineries from a dozen different countries.

Today, more passionate than ever, she now travels throughout New England as the Regional Sales Manager for Copper Cane Wine & Provisions, educating consumers, motivating sales people and sharing her love of great food and wine with consumers through lectures, trade tastings and wine dinners.

Exploring Small CA Wineries - Oct 24


A Sit down wine tasting/education held in the Franklin Liquors wine room.
We will explore three small CA wineries.

The Wineries
Mountain View
From its inception in 1978, Mountain View has produced wines of superior quality. “Mom & Pop” vineyards are chosen from various regions throughout California that offer strong varietal character. Exceptional weather/climate/soil conditions set the stage for our terroir driven Amador County Zinfandel and Pinot Noir from Santa Maria Valley.

Ty Caton
20 years ago Ty Caton partnered with his parents to develop a 108 acre property in the renowned Mayacamas Mountain Range. Located adjacent to some world class vineyards and with an array of various soils, elevations, and sun exposures, it is a prime location for grape growing and now has its own prestigious appellation ~ Moon Mountain District. Only 40 acres of this certified sustainably farmed vineyard are planted to grapes. Ty learned to make wine from his friends, neighbors and practice. He strives for excellence and is an exceptional blender.

Fitch Mountain
Fitch Mountain Cellars started with 1 barrel made in a garage by Mike Duffy, a UC Davis Grad, Trefethen intern, and personal friend of wine guru Andre Tchelistcheff in 1984. Still handcrafted, our Merlot comes from a tiny, 4th generation vineyard in Dry Creek. Reminiscent of the breakout style in the ’80’s, this velvety wine has layers of complexity.

About Judy Lebel
In 2010, Judy Lebel realized the best way to fulfill her passion for enjoying fine wine and great food with interesting people was to go out on her own. Best Year Ever Wine Agency specializes in small production, earth friendly, family wineries. She was trained by many of California’s winery founders and later worked for the Robert Mondavi and Beringer/Raymond families.

Exploring Villa Matilde Wines - Aug 22

Exploring Villa Matilde Wines
August 22 , 7 - 9 PM

Host: Ciro Pirone


A Franklin Wine Club sit down wine tasting event held in the Franklin Liquors Wine Room.

$5 per person RSVP required

The name itself Campania felix, coined by the Romans implied the importance that this fertile land has had throughout history. Since the times of Julius Caesar the highly esteemed wines of Campania were consumed and exported to faraway lands, the Romans had already created a mapping of the most important sites for wine production and above all was the Falernum. 

After centuries of fame and success, Falernum disappears from existence due to phylloxera and it isn't till the early 1960's and the incredible dedication of the Avallone family to recover such an important piece of history, and finally Falernum (aka Falerno del Massico) relieves.

Today the Villa Matilde properties extend beyond the area of Massico, also representing the territories of Benevento where Falanghina and Aglianico thrive as well as the major appellations of Irpinia, such as Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino and Taurasi.

Come explore 7 wines with us!

Exploring Michele Chiarlo Wines

Since 1956 Michele Chiarlo is synonym with the wines of Piemonte. At a very young age Michele started to travel to showcase with unlimited passion what Piemonte could produce. With Michele's guidance now his sons Stefano and Alberto have taken over different roles and are carrying on their father's passion. The story of Michele Chiarlo as a wine producer starts with Barbera and specifically from Asti but quickly moves to cover all the top areas of Piemonte, Gavi, Barolo, Barbaresco and more.

The philosophy at the winery is to produce classic wines of terroir with the most up to date know how and still vivid passion.

Adams Bio

As Michele Chiarlo’s North American Brand Ambassador, Adam makes regular trips to Piedmont, Italy and works closely with Michele’s sons Alberto (sales and marketing) and Stefano (winemaking and technical aspects).

Adam has had a passion for wine and food for as long as he can remember. He began his wine studies in his early twenties that included an internship on a Tuscan vineyard, gaining hands on experience in every phase of wine production.

After years of representing Chiarlo wines in wholesale, he was introduced to the Michele Chiarlo family. In 2016 he took the position with the winery and now travels the United States and Canada, proudly promoting the Chiarlo family wines. Adam lives in Charleston, South Carolina with his wife and son.
