A wee six years old, Brooklyn Uncorked has grown into the biggest and baddest Long Island wine tasting in New York.
Launched as a partnership of the Long Island Wine Council and the Edible magazines in the region, the walk-around event outgrew its original home at the Brooklyn Academy of Music before moving around the corner to the soaring space within the Williamsburg Bank Clocktower known as Skylight One Hanson. (It’s just across from the Barclay’s Center for all you Nets fans.)
New Yorkers descend on Brooklyn Uncorked in droves, not just to sample more than 33 New York State wineries, all under one roof, but to pair those indigenous wines with nibbles from an all-star roster of farm-to-table restaurants and local food purveyors. Uncorked first-timers include Blue Hill, Fonda and Saul Bolton’s new Red Gravy. And longtime Uncorked allies, Gramercy Tavern, Rose Water, the Vanderbilt and Palo Santo, will also be back dishing spring treats to go with spring wines.
This year’s Brooklyn Uncorked will be held on Wednesday, May 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. As of press time, earlybird tickets have sold out. Regular price and VIP tickets are still available through Thrillist. Your $125 VIP ticket entitles you to extra pours from Lieb Family Cellars, Palmer Vineyards, Ravines Vineyard, Roanoke Vineyards, Shinn Estate Vineyards, a special spread from Stinky Bklyn and a goodie bag from Whole Foods and Arirang Kimchi.
