Despite what someone who doesn’t know much about wine might tell you, a lot of great wine is made in New York. Whether or not you need to be convinced, you should check out Hound’s Tree’s new tasting room in Williamsburg. They’re serving a huge selection of New York wines, both from their vineyard on Long Island and others around the state. Sit in leather chairs surrounded by barrels outside on Bedford Avenue, and try wines ranging from North Fork chardonnay to Finger Lakes skin-contact pet-nats, all of which are available in 3-ounce and 6-ounce pours, as well as by the bottle. They’re also serving snacks like oysters and locally-sourced cheeses and charcuterie.
A Long Island-based winery just opened a new outdoor tasting room in Williamsburg that’s focused on wine made in New York State. If you regularly talk about varietals like celebrities in a pop culture segment, the barrel-barricaded leather chairs on Hound’s Tree’s sidewalk patio are calling your name. And even if you’re still trying to figure out what exactly a tannin is, you can order a few glasses with some oysters and a charcuterie board from 5 to 11pm on weekdays and 12 to 10pm on weekends.
