Wine with your Own Stamp made in New York City: City Winery

If you live in and around New York City, in a few months you will have a chance to create your own private label wine courtesy of City Winery.

After consulting with the resident winemaker and picking the varietal to be used for their wine, up to 200 lucky few (per year) will create their own barrel, a barrel equals 250 bottles.

I am not sure if blends will be possible.

Grapes will be sourced from California, Oregon, Washington, and New York State.

City Winery will also house its own wine bar and offer a light menu including a selection of cheese.

Located on Varick Street in Soho, It will also host live shows and can be booked for private events.

Interesting idea, first discovered on Springwise.
