New York residents consider their town the centre of the US wine universe. They are correct in drawing this conclusion. The West coast is where most US wines originate. Very little wine is made near New York City, yet New York is home to some of the country’s most important retailers, importers and critics. What’s true for Manhattan is not necessarily true for Brooklyn, which considers itself more hip, more au courant, and generally more interesting. Queens is like another world entirely. With more than 20m people in the New York City metro area, it is bigger than many countries and constantly making itself over. There’s something in NYC at every level of Wine interest. Check back here often and you’ll never miss a beat!
