Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens can take a seat because Amy Poehler opened a wine store in Brooklyn and it’s our absolute new favorite thing.
Poehler quietly opened Zula in November with her friends (and a couple of musicians), Amy Miles and Mike Robertson. The three met on the set of Wet Hot American Summer, Eater reports. The store boasts free wine tastings every night, as well as free local delivery.
If you channel Leslie Knope and order wine by saying, “I'll take the cheapest one you have because I can't tell the difference,” Zula has plenty of options for you as well. Poehler’s store has an abundant of bottles under $13. They’re even running a special, offering customers 10% off their cheapest selections for December.

Poehler is also set to make her directorial debut with a comedy called Wine Country for Netflix about a group of women (played by Saturday Night Live fan-favorites Maya Rudolph and Rachel Dratch among others). “I’ve been surrounded by wine,” Poehler told Eater. Sounds like a dream to us!
While you probably won’t run into Poehler, who lives mainly in Los Angeles, you can at least drink like her by getting a recommendation from Robertson. When asked about her personal preferences, she told Eater, “Honestly, I’ll just drink whatever Mike recommends to me.”
