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.
