Co-founders Brian Leventhal and John Stires previously worked together at an internet startup. While there, they made their own wine with a group of co-workers at a winemaking facility in New Jersey for three years running. After realizing what an incredible amount of fun winemaking is, then observing a nearly complete lack of wineries in Brooklyn, and recognizing that New Yorkers are obsessed with all things local, Brian and John quit their jobs (in a terrible economy, no less) to open the business. In the end, it was Brian and John’s unrelenting passion and dedication to their innovative idea that led them to officially open the winery less than a year after the company’s inception. It’s that passion and dedication that permeates every aspect of Brooklyn Winery, from the wines they craft to the exceptional service they and their team provide.
