A great atmosphere and even better wine in Brooklyn's gritty-cool Red Hook neighborhood.
Wine produced in Brooklyn.
What's the Deal?
In 2008 Red Hook Winery began as (and remains) a small, artisanal operation with three wine makers (one, a Brooklyn native) creating wines from 15 different New York vineyards.
You'll find a variety of white, red + rose including creative blends like their aptly named "Twenty One: Twenty Four". This is the time (in military time) when the Superstorm Sandy surge came in to completely wipe out the winery as well as the rest of Red Hook. Loosing about 100 barrels and fermentation tanks, it's an incredible feat that not only the winery pulled itself back together (thanks in a big part to volunteers who were supporters of the winery) but that it's continued to grow in it's success.
At the winery you'll find a large, cozy tasting room right next to the work space where the delicious smell of fermenting grapes wafts in.
You can get to the Red Hook Winery with a 30m walk from the F, G at the Smith/ 9th St. station or with the New York Water Taxi's Red Hook Dock.
