Now you can have your wine on tap and drink it too. Should you find yourself in New York’s SoHo district (corner of Varick and Vandam to be exact), make your way into City Winery and check out their newly-opened Barrel Room. Pick your vintage of choice from the 11 featured wines on tap, blended and aged in-house under the meticulous watch of head winemaker David Lecomte. Pairing your wine with their cheeses is de rigueur—City Winery carries in locally from Murray’s Cheese. Cleanse your pallet with any of their Mediterranean small plates, each brought to life by executive chef Andres Berreras, and relax knowing you won't have to worry about your wine being "corked."
