Girls Night Out: Brooklyn Winery Tour & Tasting + Dinner @ Sweet Chick

Girls Night Out Brooklyn Winery Tour & Tasting

I had a long overdue Girls Night Out with my girls last week. We kicked off the evening with a Brooklyn Winery Tour & Tasting. Now I’ve been on a Nappa & Sonoma Winery Tour, but never on a winery tour here in New York. I thought why not make my first New York winery experience in my home borough.

The Brooklyn Winery Tour & Tasting features a 30 minute winery tour followed by a 30 minute tasting of Brooklyn Winery wines. The tours take place on Tuesdays at 6:30pm and 8pm, and the tickets are $25. We went on a Monday since it was a holiday (4th of July) on Tuesday.

The winery had an old school feel with the vintage decor.

Our group of about 12 met in this cozy lounge area and sipped on a a glass of Chardonnay while we awaited everyone’s arrival.

Grape shipments are received in this beautiful room. The truck backs up to the window and drops the grapes directly into the wooden cellar under the tables. This is is also the space where Brooklyn Winery holds wedding receptions and other events. The natural light was amazing, and I loved the plants on the wall. My girls and I had to get an Usie…

Next we moved on to see the stainless steel vats where the Chardonnay we’re sipping on was made. Our tour guide explained how wine is made through fermentation. He also gave a detailed overview of the difference between fermenting in stainless vats vs oak barrels. Speaking of barrels, we saw that area next…

Here we sampled a wine fermented in the oak barrels. And our tour guide told us the difference in the fermenting process for Red, White and Rose wines.

Now it was time to sit for the wine tasting. We sampled 8 wines in total. I enjoyed them all, especially the 2014 Riesling and the 2013 Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Brooklyn Winery Tour & Tasting was a nice kick off to our girls night out. We had an amazing time. There was also a restaurant section where you can enjoy a meal. But we opted to try the food at another time since Brooklyn Winery has an outpost restaurant in our neighborhood. So we headed to Sweet Chick.

As you know, I’m a Pescatarian so I don’t do Chicken. But Sweet Chick makes a Vegetarian Fried Chicken. Let me tell y’all, it’s amazing! It was seasoned great and I don’t know how in the world they got the texture so close!

My cuz Mo had the General Tso’s Vegetarian Fried Chicken with the classic waffles. The sauce was so good…

I believe Gina had the Nashville Fried Chicken with Spiced Pecan Waffle. I opted for the Original Vegetarian Fried Chicken & Spiced Pecan Waffles. They were served with 3 types of Butter. I can’t remeber the flavors but mine had lemon and it was delicious.

We were stuffed but decided to share the Blueberry Cobbler Dessert. It was on point. Per usual we had an amazing Girls Night Out and I can’t wait to do it again soon.
