City Winery is the brainchild of Michael Dorf, founder of the legendary Knitting Factory, who wanted to create a space in The City where he could combine his passions for wine and music. The core target audience of City Winery are people who share those same passions. We cater to urban wine enthusiasts who desire the experience of making their own wine, but who are not going to leave their comfortable City lifestyle to decamp to a vineyard.


We offer the unique opportunity to make wine right in the city! The best grapes are imported from around the US and some from South America, and brought to our facility where they are crushed and the winemaking begins. The result -- locally made wine, with the option for your own custom label
