Crosby Street Vineyards

Hi! Hi there! Can I refill your glass with this gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from Crosby Street Vineyards, the first vineyard in Manhattan? We're located on the small, cobblestoned street tucked right between Broadway and Lafayette in SoHo. This is our 2010 vintage, which was a great year for us. The grapes were harvested directly from Dean & Deluca. What do you think? I know! Isn't it just beautiful? This takes the meaning of locavore to a whole new level. We're now working on a rooftop vineyard. I just thought, you know, why not? ...

Okay, so this wine is not made in Manhattan and I do not own a vineyard in SoHo. I bought this wine from Astor Wines & Spirits and brought it to a gathering at someone's apartment in Brooklyn. My spiel made for a very good ice-breaker, though. I think it was convincing up until I mentioned that the grapes were harvested from Dean & Deluca. For something that is under $10 a bottle, the wine itself is actually pretty nice for everyday drinking.
