Give our wines, beers, and foods a good chilly home at our all-local BOE Winery Tasting Room - with new refrigeration!
Our small merchandising refrigerator, which I frugally bought used when I first opened the Tasting Room, has died and gone to refrigerator heaven. Our low-boy 'fridge is now overstuffed!
A new 3-door refrigerator will replace the merchandising space we used to have for our cold wines, meats, and cheeses for sale. This upgrade will provide additional room to more effectively showcase our new beers for sale.
Your assistance will help us finance the unexpected replacement of a major piece of equipment, without resorting to a credit card purchase and paying additional interest over months.
Brooklyn Oenology founder and owner Alie Shaper, in the BOE Tasting Room.
The Brooklyn Oenology Winery Tasting Room is where you can visit us to taste and purchase our entire lineup of New York wines, and have a truly all-local experience in drink, food, and art.
I started Brooklyn Oenology Winery in 2006, with the idea to create a set of wines that celebrate the agricultural, culinary, and artistic worlds that intersect in Brooklyn. To do that, I committed to using only grapes grown in New York, and we collaborate with Brooklyn-based artists to grace our labels with their work to highlight all the amazing talent in our borough.
BOE started out as a one-woman, two-wine operation, with yours truly visiting wine shops and restaurants hand-selling wine all over the city. For the winery's first three years, we sold directly to wholesale accounts, growing the number of wines we make, and gaining fans all over town.
In Fall 2010, we realized our dream of opening our Winery Tasting Room, a place where anyone could come to taste all of our now 11 wines, and enjoy rotating art shows of works by each of our label artists.
Not only do we want to share our love of winemaking with our neighbors, we're also dedicated to spreading the word and educating folks about all things fermented in New York. We offer an ever-changing guest selection of locally-made wines, whiskeys, bourbons, gins, vodkas, from all over the state. Just recently we added NY beers - which rounds us out into all three major categories of beverage!
And it doesn’t stop there! You can also pick up NY-made meats, cheeses, jams, sauces, pickles, and snacks to go, or chow down on something to pair with all these great local libations.
