Ak -- grapes from California (or more likely wine made in California and shipped to NY for bottling) passed off as "Brooklyn" wine. Have they no shame?!?!?! I hear this is a much more common practice than the wine drinking public knows, the wine industry's "dirty little secret." You think you're buying local, but really you're buying CA wine with a local label. Humph!

a byproduct of overplanting in the 'good' years...the juice gotta go somewhere and i'm sure they don't want to ship it to Welch's.

Actually, quite the contrary is true. The manufacturer, creator, company and owner are all from Brooklyn. At this point, they're only available in Brooklyn (www.redwhiteandbubbly.com) and they're created uniquely for Brooklyn. This blend (Feliz) doesn't exist anywhere else, so it's signature of Brooklyn. Brooklyn's mayor even proclaimed it as the official wine of Brooklyn.

I don't believe the origin of the materials makes a product less signature for Brooklyn. Consider that the universal symbol of NYC (the Statue of Liberty) was created in France. Does that make it any less about New York?
