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.
