Whether or not you opt to partake in this winery's make-your-own-vino program—which guides aspiring vintners through everything from grape selection to bottling—you can grab a drink at the bi-level bar up front, outfitted with reclaimed church pews. House-made wines are forthcoming; for now, sip mostly local offerings like North Fork merlot (from one of six taps) or riesling from the Finger Lakes region. Nearby specialty shop Radish will furnish the menu of small bites like lamb meatballs with cucumber raita or pimentón-dusted popcorn.

I had this place booked marked for a while. A groupon is what really got the wheels moving. For $55.00 it included a wine tour, tasting, your choice of a cheese plate or charcuterie plate, along with an etched souvenir wine glass for two people.
There were some very strong meats and cheeses, that I didn't like however; the plates also had some mild meats,and cheeses, along with bread, pickles, honey, nuts, spicy mustard, and Jam. The tasting consisted of approximately 12 samples of various wines, both white and reds. I enjoyed the Stainless Steel Aged Riesling, and the Pettit Sirah.
Noel was a great tour guide, funny, and energetic. The staff were friendly. The atmosphere is comfortable and casual. I would definitely return to the Brooklyn Winery.
