About

 
Co-founders Brian Leventhal and John Stires previously worked together at an internet startup. While there, they made their own wine with a group of co-workers at a winemaking facility in New Jersey for three years running. After realizing what an incredible amount of fun winemaking is, then observing a nearly complete lack of wineries in Brooklyn, and recognizing that New Yorkers are obsessed with all things local, Brian and John quit their jobs to open the business. In the end, it was Brian and John’s unrelenting passion and dedication to their innovative idea that led them to officially open the winery less than a year after the company’s inception
 
This boutique urban winery is set in the heart of Williamsburg, one of the borough’s most vibrant and creative neighborhoods. Winemaker Conor McCormack produces premium small batch wines, combining the quality of tradition with the freedom of innovation.
