Recent James Beard winner Frasca and sister restaurant Tavernetta opening a wine bar at Union Station

A team of wine pros known for their hit Italian restaurants Frasca and Tavernetta are opening a bar dedicated to wine — and vinyl — in Denver.

For 15 years, Frasca master sommelier Bobby Stuckey has garnered a following, and plenty of awards, at his Boulder restaurant for a curated wine selection stemming from the Friuli region in Italy.

Now he and his business partners — together with managers, chefs and sommeliers from both restaurants — are branching out with Sunday Vinyl at Union Station.

It will be located across the way from Tavernetta, in a space previously occupied by a grab-and-go market. Like its chic neighbor, the bar will be designed by Semple Brown. It’s set to open sometime in the fall.

The name Sunday Vinyl comes from Stuckey’s day-off tradition of sitting at home with records, drinking good wine. Translated to a bar setting, that means a playlist created by Denver’s own Vinyl Me Please (a record subscription service).

The soundtrack, according to a release, is supposed to be “boisterous,” the wines “streamlined” and European. The food will come courtesy of current Frasca chef de cuisine Charlie Brooks, who formerly worked at New York’s Gramercy Tavern.

Stay tuned for more information.
