District Winery

Winery in Capitol Hill & South DC

Is the wine made here world class? No. But the space is really cool. It's enormous, with steel tanks fermenting the juice in back, and a clean-lined, blond wood, Scandinavian-looking room in front. Light streams in floor-to-ceiling windows, which provide ace views of the river. The outdoor patio beckons in summer. It's a swell Navy Yard spot for a glass or two.

There's a tasting bar in back; expect a wait on weekends. The front room is also a restaurant that serves modern American dishes.
