Urban Wine Country
Napa Valley's got nothing on us. Just a few short blocks from Hotel Hugo brings you to the Big Apple version of wine country...City Winery, where a thoroughly modern wine making facility bottles approximately 100,000 bottles of top-notch wine every year. And it doesn't happen behind closed doors...this winery offers oenophiles the chance to create their own private barrel – or even just a few cases. In the Barrel Room tasting bar, you can try the house wines fresh from the tap, in full view of the winery's sparkling stainless steel tanks and old school French Oak barrels. It's not all wine, though, City Winery hosts great musicians, interesting winemakers, food and wine classes, and a terrific Mediterranean menu. In other words, it's a little like one-stop-shopping for foodies.
