Brook-vin opens tonight!

Drink it in: Brian Mitchell, manager of the new Brook-vin wine bar on Seventh Avenue, shows off his house red, a delightful Sonoma County blend.

It might just be the best house wine in the borough.

Perhaps that should be expected, given that said vintage will start being poured on Thursday at the new Brook-vin, an oenophile paradise on Seventh Avenue in Park Slope that’s owned by Aaron and Gillian Hans, who also own Big Nose, Full Body across the street.

This house wine — hint: it’s the one in the unmarked bottles — is an exclusive blend by Sonoma County vintner Jake Hawkes. It’s rich on the palate and not too fruity or sweet — yet as good as it is, it’s just one reason to stop in.

Manager Brian Mitchell (pictured) makes his own bacon-infused bourbon and fruit-soaked vodkas (don’t get him started on his homemade syrups, either). And chef Dave Townsend (formerly of Savoy in Manhattan) will be offering small plates, including house-cured meats and salamis, local cheeses and salads that top out at $10.

“A couple can come in, split a half-bottle and order two plates, yet get out for less than $40,” Mitchell said.

Brook-vin [381 Seventh Ave., between 11th and 12th streets in Park Slope, (718) 768-9463] opens on Thursday, Jan. 22.
