Wines of the New World, Fall 2014

On October 6 our Wines of New World class visited the Red Hook Winery. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the winery. It was overwhelming to learn so much about the process of making wine. Red Hook Winery is located in Red Hook section of Brooklyn behind Pier 41. The scenery was beautiful because the sunny was bouncing off of the water. We were lost for about fifth teen minutes but after we found the cave-like located winery the wait was worth it. We experienced how grape were being grown, the way the wine is fermented and how to put them into barrels. We were being toured by the owner Mark Snyder. He was wonderful! He explained the wine process through. He did well into making our class welcomed. We tasted about six or more different wines. My personal favorite was the merlot and the chardonnay. Both wines were full of body and depth. Overall, I enjoyed the whole experience of visiting this winery. I will come back on my free time to enjoy one of their lovely wine tastings.
