Brooklyn winery's first vintage due out

New York State's latest wine offering may be coming from a little old place called Brooklyn.

The Red Hook Wine Co. is nearing the end of production of its first vintage, expected to be available for sale in June. It is producing about 500 cases of Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, using only grapes grown in the state.

The Grocery in Carroll Gardens and Kevin’s in Red Hook will be among the first restaurants to carry the wine. The wines will carry such Brooklyn-inspired names as "Seven In Heaven," a tribute to Red Hook firefighters who died on September 11, 2001.
