Our Wine not War movement is a shout out to what we feel is important– making and enjoying wine!
Harvest is the perfect time to see what it takes to make great wine in Urban Wine Country; no other time of the year offers the same opportunities. This year, over 100 tons of grapes are arriving from Vineyards in California, Oregon, and Washington State to City Winery and management is adding its voice to New York.
Since inception, City Winery has averaged 75 tons a year of grape production, which yields the equivalent of 250 barrels or 5000 cases of wine from 15 different vineyards. In 2010, City Winery served almost 30% of its production without it ever going into a bottle. City Winery’s cellar holds 300 French oak barrels with 11 tap lines.
In addition to sampling our own array of wines produced on premises, guests may order from City Winery’s wine list of over 400 selections from most major winemaking regions of the world, recognized by Wine Spectator magazine with a ‘Best of Award of Excellence’ in 2010.
An old adage states, “that wine is made in the vineyard” and whilst it is true to an extent, it takes a winery to make great wine. Step inside City Winery and they’ll show you just how it’s done. Make wine not war– four simple words that could change your world.
