Brooklyn Winery owner Brian Leventhal is yet another resident with a business in Williamsburg, who makes its northern neighbor of Greenpoint his home. Leventhal and John Stires are the innovators behind the beautiful urban winery and event space, which they started after they visited a winery in New Jersey.
Greenpointers chatted with Brian about the challenges of owning a business that depends not only on the harvest and transport of grapes, but also on the whims of Brooklyn drinkers.

Welcome to a new Greenpointers food series called A Taste for Books. We’ll be taking a page from the monthly cookbook club and potluck hosted by our Greenpoint neighbors, Archestratus (visit them at 160 Huron Street), featuring a different cookbook each month paired with insights from the monthly discussion. Thanks for joining us on this adventure that will highlight scrumptious recipes, dissect interesting ingredients and generally recap what happens when you mix cooks with books in Greenpoint.
At our seasonal markets we always make sure to donate space to unique community-oriented organizations. This Sunday, because we know you’re all going to be having fun at the Greenpointers Spring Market anyway, you should stop by and check out GOSO, (Getting Out and Staying Out, Inc.). They provide comprehensive re-entry services to young men (16-24) who’ve been involved in the criminal justice system.
Hannah Dilworth may own Williamsburg shop Concrete + Water, but her heart belongs to Greenpoint, where she lives with her fiancé and their dog Henry.
Hannah’s shop is a beautiful, stylish sight to behold, with gorgeous, well-curated items, from the perfect summer bikini to the most current pair of sunnies.
A recent panel at the shop, sponsored by Made Real Vodka and moderated by its founder Nicole Williams, featured a fun and lively group of female North Brooklyn entrepreneurs. As would-be entrepreneurs sipped a spicy honey-vodka cocktail, they listened to Hannah, Victorian Deych, Kilee Hughes and Lenore Champagne Beirne discussing the confidence required to be your own boss in a hostile economic climate. Afterwards, we chatted with Hannah about the event, her shop, collaborating with her partner, and how she turned her passion into a lifestyle.
