Nature meets wine. Few people know that Manhattan was the first place in New York State to plant grapes for wine-making. Back in the mid 1600's, Dutch settlers brought vinifera grape stock from Europe. The vines didn't survive, but later plantings managed to flourish elsewhere in the state. Eventually it was discovered that vinifera canes could be grafted onto native rootstock, making it possible for New York's wineries to produce unique varieties that mirror the city's cultural diversity. While most of the wineries listed here are not open for tours, you should look for their products at your favorite retailer.
