Red Hook Wines, which has been highly anticipated since being announced about a year ago, is finally almost ready to open. While we've only been able to gaze in at the barrels from outside, the Broolyn Paper was actually lucky enough to get a sneak taste last week.
This new business is part of what seems to be a movement towards Red Hook becoming a beverage production center and destination - with Six Point Craft Ales across the street (pictured below with Rocky Sullivans), the arrival of a Stumptown Coffee roasting plant and cafe, and the long discussed potential move of Brooklyn Brewery (and its infamous tastings and tours) to the area.
Wine, beer, and coffee - three of my favorite beverages. I'm getting thirsty.
