At Red Hook Winery in Brooklyn, there are big comfy couches and massive barrels stand as tables. Either way, friendly and knowledgeable staff walk you through the wine selection. All the grapes are grown in New York, either in the finger lakes region or on Long Island. Two Napa winemakers, Abe Schoener and Robert Foley, teamed up with a Brooklyn native, Mark Snyder, to make the wines, and they're not afraid to make wackier ones, like skin-fermented whites. Information: Open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily; $5 for a sampling of 3 wines, or $12 for a choice of 6 reserve wines, or $15 for a tour and a tasting of 5 wines. Information: 347-689-2432 and www.redhookwinery.com.
