99. The Red Hook Winery — Brooklyn, New York

Quality wine being made in a New York City borough! Started by Brooklyn native Mark Snyder and two cult California winemakers, Robert Foley and Abe Schoener, The Red Hook Winery sources fruit from Long Island and the Finger Lakes and crafts wines in its Brooklyn facility. The two winemakers each make their own wines, splitting every lot of juice in half to create very different, yet terroir-expressive, wines, ranging from white to red to orange. Hurricane Sandy devastated the winery in 2012, destroying much of the 2011 and 2012 vintage wines, but the facilities returned to functionality for harvest in 2013.
