Anthony Graziano, whose media and marketing company is dedicated to the beer, wine, and spirits industries, is developing a wine bar called The Shaker & Vine that will be part of the River House, a retail/apartment complex on the waterfront at Mohawk Harbor in Schenectady. That will make it a neighbor of the new Rivers Casino & Resort.
According to a news release from the Galesi Group, developer of Mohawk Harbor, a central feature of The Shaker & Vine will be a self-serve wine dispenser that will allow customers to pour a tasting portion or full glass of up to 60 different wines. It also will offer a full bar, specialty cocktails, and a menu to include gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, flatbread pizzas, charcuterie boards, and chocolate and cheese fondue.
An early 2018 opening is anticipated.
