Vineyard History

Brooklyn Oenology Winery (pron. ‘EN-ology’, or simply ‘BOE’), is a locally focused winery based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn founded in 2006 by winemaker Alie Shaper. BOE works to bridge the creative culinary, agricultural and art worlds by crafting award-winning regional wines from NY State grapes, and by displaying the work of New York City artists on our bottle labels. The aim of Brooklyn Oenology is to celebrate our local creativity – agricultural, culinary and visual, just as Brooklyn and the rest of our state has been doing for hundreds of years! BOE does not own vineyards; we purchase our fruit directly from New York vineyards, and then manage our winemaking, from harvest through press to fermentation, tank and/or barrel storage, and then into the bottle.
