The fifth-annual gathering of wineries and good eats known as Brooklyn Uncorked has already sold out its early bird tickets, but there’s still time to plunk down what you would for a low-level Napa cab and be able to taste the best wines New York State has to offer. The event, on Tuesday, May 10, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, is there to remind dwellers of the five boroughs and beyond that world-class wine-producing regions are a day trip from where they live, one of the biggest wine markets in the world—New York City.
The $40 ticket provides access to tasting tables of 26 vineyards/ wineries (at the time of publication) as well as wine-friendly bites from some of the city’s most celebrated food makers, including Edible event veterans like Applewood, Buttermilk Channel, Cleaver Co. & the Green Table, Dressler and Dumont, Gramercy Tavern, Great Performances, Greenmarkets, Palo Santo, Rose Water, Savoy, the Good Fork, the Vanderbilt, as well as newcomers Les Trois Petits Cochons, McEnroe Farms, Organic Valley’s New York farmers, Red Hook Lobster Pound and Vandaag.
Tasters end up on a stroll through a room where they can taste Long Island wines, from cool-climate merlots to steely sauvignon blancs, from fruity chardonnays to varietal rosés. Visit events at ediblemanhattan.com for a list of participants and to sign up.
