Jump forward to spring with us! Did you know the world’s first commercially viable rooftop vineyard is hidden within the Brooklyn Navy Yard? Untapped Cities will be bringing readers on a special wine tasting and tour at Rooftop Reds, led by one of its founders who will share his knowledge of the urban winemaking process.
Within the 14,800 square foot rooftop, you will see a unique urban planter system that is the first of its kind, developed with Cornell University and Finger Lakes industry leaders. Get in on this experience early, as the first harvest will be taking place in October 2017.
On this tour, you’ll get to sample four wines, lounge in a hammock and take in rooftop views. (Please note that the wine served on the rooftop is from Rooftop Reds partners in the Finger Lakes until the first harvest off the Navy Yard rooftop is ready.) As an added bonus, all guests will receive 20% off purchases of Rooftop Reds take-home bottles or merchandise.
Price: $30 ($10 for food platter add-on)
