Fall arrives this week — and with that, we say goodbye to the last days of sweltering heat. To celebrate, join us for our final wine tasting and tour of Rooftop Reds for the season. We’re taking readers inside this special gem, the world’s first commercially viable rooftop vineyard, hidden within the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
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. Take in amazing view and sip on Rooftop Red wines on our tour, led by one of its founders who will share his knowledge of the urban winemaking process.
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!
- Sample four wines as part of the tour
- Join a wine tasting, while lounging in a hammock and taking in rooftop views

Price: $30 (+ $10 for food platter add-on)
