I started the company in 2008 in NYC as I saw a wide open space in the market to serve great wine to music fans who wanted to sit for a concert and sip out of a real glass–not a plastic cup. Every time I would visit a beautiful winery, be it in Italy or California, inevitably, I thought how cool would it be to sit down and see a concert in this setting. And thus was born City Winery.
