Red Hook Winery

New York City

Sip wines from across New York in this stripped-bare tasting room, lined with barrels and crowded with chardonnay-sipping locals every weekend. Though the grapes are plucked from Finger Lakes and Long Island vineyards, every drop is produced right here. At this waterside winery, the cabernet sauvignon and riesling tastes even better looking out over the water.
