Sometimes you just don’t have time – or desire – to go out to the countryside where the grapes are growing, but you do want to be at the source of good wine. Have no fear; urban wineries have got you covered. And when in New York, Pennsylvania, or Massachusetts, these are some must-visit urban wineries. Check out these five great east coast urban wineries:
Brooklyn Oenology Winery is always buzzing with happy wine lovers.
Brooklyn Oenology keeps things local by sourcing grapes from New York to make its very own wine. In addition, Brooklyn Oenology supports the local arts by using a different Brookyln-based artist for the artwork on each bottle of wine. If you want to #golocal in NYC, then you better head to Brooklyn for an evening at Brooklyn Oenology.
The City Winery has outlets in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and Boston, all focusing not only on the art of winemaking, but the overall experience of entertaining. At City Winery you can book various dining experiences including: concert dining, barrel room dining, or private dining. Of course, a big part of the dining experience is the wine, and at City Winery you’ll have some world-class wines.
Family-owned and operated, it’s only fitting that the namesakes cut the ribbon for the opening of R.A.W.
R.A.W. Urban Winery & Hard Cidery
R.A.W. Urban Winery & Hard Cidery is truly a labor of love – like, for reals. Two people fell in love and decided to make a business out of something they both love: wine and cider. This family-run winery is all about community, and that is invaluable. And while the wines are good, the hard ciders are something to rave about. This is definitely one of our favorite east coast urban wineries.
