Wineries usually summon images of gently sloping hills covered with twisting vines of grapes -- not brownstones with garbage strewn out front. But wine can be made in any setting. Set just a short walk from the Bedford L stop, Brooklyn Winery (213 North 8th Street, Williamsburg; 347-763-1506) makes wines right in the heart of Brooklyn. Right now, it's in the midst of harvest, which means you can watch the entire process from start to finish.
