An Urban Winery in Washington, DC
Our boutique urban winery is set in the heart of The Yards, a bustling community in DC's Navy Yard along the Anacostia River. Winemaker Conor McCormack produces our premium small batch wines, combining the quality of tradition with the freedom of innovation. You will be able to tour Washington, DC's only operational commercial winery to learn about how our wines are produced, then settle into the restaurant and savor our artisanal wines while indulging in our seasonal menu. For those looking to commemorate a special occasion, we will also function as a private event venue, featuring full-service weddings and corporate gatherings with wine crafted on-site, exquisite cuisine, and the beautiful winery as a backdrop.
Co-founders Brian Leventhal and John Stires previously worked together in New York City and for several years made their own wine recreationally in New Jersey with a group of co-workers. After realizing how much fun winemaking is, Brian and John quit their jobs to open Brooklyn Winery in the vibrant and creative Williamsburg neighborhood. Now, the duo is thrilled to bring their winery concept to a different but no less exciting city: Washington, DC. With its bustling and dynamic culture, DC always stood out as the city that would be an excellent fit for Brian and John's newest winery venture. The co-founders' passion and dedication permeates every aspect of their business, and they are eager to expand this sensibility to a whole new city.
