According to the organizers:
On April 22nd, come join us for our first-annual Wine List Release Party, spotlighting premiere Finger Lakes & New York State vintages. One of Rooftop Reds’ key objectives is to expose city dwellers to the amazing wines that our state produces, with a particular emphasis on the Finger Lakes wine region. On April 22nd, we will welcome nine prominent wineries at Building 92 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard to highlight our serving menu for the 2017 season. All of the participating wineries were handpicked by the Rooftop Reds management team to showcase the boutique winery movement that is flourishing in the Finger Lakes and throughout the state.
April 22nd is also Earth Day and to celebrate, Rooftop Reds will be giving a propagated vine from our rooftop vineyard to each guest. It is Rooftop Reds’ goal to spread our passion for world-class wines while also generating enthusiasm for greening our cities. Our urban populations need more green space and with your help, we can spread this belief by sharing the core of our business: the rooftop vineyard.
Another core value of Rooftop Reds is our commitment to give back to the local community. On October 19th 2016, Rooftop Reds launched a scholarship program in conjunction with the SUNY/CUNY school systems. Our scholarship goal is to raise $25,000 by the end of 2017 season. In order to help with this mission, Rooftop Reds will host a Wine List Release After-Party following the main event on April 22nd. This after party will occur at the rooftop vineyard and anyone who wishes to attend will be asked to make a $5 donation that will go towards our scholarship program.
We look forward to seeing you all at our Wine List Release Party!
