This place was a great find...located in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn right along the pier its a fun visit. We took a cab over from Manhattan via the Battery tunnel and only took about 20 minutes from midtown, you can also take a combo of other transportation, on the return we walked from the winery through the Red Hook section to the IKEA store which has a free water taxi which runs every 40 minutes and takes you back to the Wall Street pier in Manhattan. For us there were several other cool little places in RedHook section worth a stop, there is a chocolate plant, a brewery and several other neat places. Red Hook is an old shipyard dock area (Queen Mary docks there cuz its deeper water) that is going through a redevelopment phase, some sections are still very funky which you should stay away from, but for the most part the area around the winery is very safe.
If you contact the winery they will set up a tasting and short tour(the winery is quite small), they are experimenting with New York State varietals trying to mix and match grapes to find blends that are unique...we tried 6 different wines, the reisling was pretty good and the reds were a little rough, but we did find a 2008 red that we took home. Its a fun place to visit, and give your self another hour or two to explore RedHook.
