Unveiling the World of Wine

For centuries, wine has captivated hearts and palates with its diverse flavors, complex aromas, and rich history. Whether you're a seasoned connoisseur or a curious newcomer, stepping into the world of wineries and wine tasting can be an exciting and enriching experience.

Wineries: Where Magic Happens:

Imagine rolling hills adorned with vibrant vineyards, the air buzzing with the anticipation of harvest. That's the essence of a winery, a place where grapes are transformed into liquid poetry. From small, family-owned operations to sprawling estates, wineries offer a glimpse into the art and science of winemaking.

Unlocking the Flavors: The Art of Wine Tasting:

Wine tasting goes beyond simply drinking; it's a multi-sensory journey of discovery. Swirl the wine in your glass, observe the color's depth and clarity. Take a deep breath and inhale the complex aromas – hints of fruit, spice, even earth? Finally, take a sip, letting the flavors dance on your tongue. Is it dry or sweet? Smooth or tannic? Each sip reveals a new layer of the wine's story.

Beyond the Sip: The Winery Experience:

Many wineries offer tours, allowing you to witness the winemaking process firsthand. Learn about the different grape varietals, the meticulous fermentation techniques, and the aging process that shapes each unique bottle. Engage with knowledgeable staff who can answer your questions and guide you through the tasting experience.

To make great wines you need a few key ingredients. Naturally, things like good soil, healthy vines, sunlight, plentiful grapes and good barrels are all necessary. However, truly great wines require something more, something our family has cultivated alongside our 70 acres of premium varietals since 1933, hard work and passion.
Established in 1933.
Founded over 80 years ago by our grandfather, we are the third generation of Tomasellos to build upon his great vision. Not only through dedicating our lives to growing and producing excellent wines that are a true expression of the Outer Coastal Plain, a historically celebrated American wine growing region, but by bringing our wines closer to your families with elegant tasting rooms and gift shops throughout the great Garden State.

Established in 1992.
Unionville's home vineyard is an 88.9 acre farm that had originally been part of the largest peach orchard in the United States. The farm was split off as a dowry present when one of the original owner's daughters was married in 1856. The main house and the oldest section of the winery building were built in 1858. In the heart of America's Colonial Crescent, Unionville Vineyards offers breathtaking natural beauty, bountiful terroir, historic significance and award-winning artisanal wines. The land of Unionville itself is a rich patchwork of American history. In 1900 the farm was sold and became a successful dairy farm. In 1965 the farm was sold to developers who originally had it planted in grains. The property was purchased in 1980 with the goal of saving the farm, returning the land to its fruit growing tradition and starting the Unionville Vineyards. vines were planted in 1982 and the winery opened to the public on April 1, 1993.

The Red Hook Winery
175 Van Dyke St Pier 41, Ste 325A Brooklyn, NY 11231
The Red Hook Winery began in concept in July 2008 and began crushing grapes one month later. Owner Mark Snyder, a Brooklyn native, convinced two Napa cult wine maker friends Abe Schoener and Robert Foley to get on board. The goal, to work with a liked region and make it loved. With as many as 15 different New York vineyards, as many as 26 wines per vintage right here in Brooklyn, we are still a small, hand-crafted operation. Splitting each lot of grapes in half for each wine maker to experiment, we continue to discover what New York means in liquid form, letting the juice tell the story.
Established in 2008.
The Red Hook Winery, founded in 2008 by Mark Snyder, aims to uncover and highlight the best vineyard sites in New York state. From the salty, sea-breeze-blown North Fork of Long Island to the stone, shale, and winter-dominated Finger Lakes, we work with grape farmers who give agricultural definition to New York's nascent winegrowing country. Our three winemakers-Robert Foley, Abe Schoener, and Christopher Nicolson-create unique expressions of these individual vineyard sites, producing wines that reflect the climate, geology, and viticulture that make New York unlike any other growing region in the world.
