Queens Adds Wine to Its Resume

advertisement

New York City's borough of Queens is known for the Mets, Kennedy and LaGuardia airports, ethnic diversity and now, wine.

The Queens County Farm Museum is about to uncork the first bottles of wine from its vineyards.

Museum staffers have been growing merlot, chardonnay and cabernet grapes on a 1 1/2-acre plot since 2004.

The first wines from those grapes have now been bottled and are ready to sell.  The museum will sell 900 cases at an auction on May 18.

The museum is the only commercial wine grower in New York City. There are vineyards nearby on Long Island and in upstate New York.
