First, we’d like to submit for the canon of material depicting how New Yorkers differ by zipcode Lisa McLaughlin’s recent piece for us on how Manhattanites drink wine by nabe. (Sit tight. She’s hard at work on the Brooklyn version.)
Second, we’d like to also reassure you that no matter whether you’re in 10010 or 10021, or whether you reside on the Isle of Manhattan or beyond, you’re never too far from a place to buy or order or sip Long Island wine. Just in case you are feeling some withdrawal after last week’s Brooklyn Uncorked (we sure are, especially for all the sparklers we tried), we assembled a list of partner wine shops in Manhattan and Brooklyn who have are offering classes, tastings, discounts and more, all in celebration of New York wine for the month of May. See a partial list below or the complete list on this handy calendar.
May 12, at Brooklyn Wine Exchange, Around the World Wine Club with Barbara Shinn of Shinn Estate Vineyards.
May 13, at Greene Grape, pours from Brooklyn Oenology.
May 15, at Brooklyn Wine Exchange, Red Hook Winery with Mark Snyder.
