There is a winery in the City, and no we aren’t talking about one way up in the Bronx, or on some Staten Island farm, we are talking about the Village Winery Club, a winery that is run out of a 550 square foot East Village apartment.
Matt Baldassano is one of a very small group of New York City wine makers. Using techniques taught to him by his grandfather, Matt and some carefully selected friends make wine out of his Lower East Side apartment. The grapes are shipped in and the rest of the job is taken care of by hand here in NYC.
