Hidden within the Brooklyn Navy Yard lies Rooftop Reds, the first commercially viable urban rooftop vineyard in New York City. The 14,800-square-foot winery, which overlooks Lower Manhattan’s skyline, is lined with tables, hammocks and a bar. For city folk, it’s a “literal oasis, a green patch in the sky with 360 degree views” — and we’re kicking off August with a special tour and wine tasting there. We still have tickets left for this weekend’s tour on Sunday, August 6th!
Within the 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. Lounge in hammocks, take in rooftop views and sip on four Rooftop Red wines on our tour, led by one of its founders who will share his knowledge of the urban wine making process. All guests will also get 20% off purchases of Rooftop Reds take-home bottles or merchandise.
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 are ready!
Price: $30 (+ $10 for food platter add-on)
