Heritage Wines for Edible Brooklyn

All Photos © Valery Rizzo

A while ago I photographed the lovely wine shop Heritage Wines in Fort Greene, for Edible Brooklyn. Shop managers Giancarlo Luiggi and Karl Wurst dazzled customers with their wealth of knowledge of winemaking and the regions the shop specializes in. Above are some more of the shots from the day.To read the Edible story and to learn more about Brooklyn's best wine shops click here.

Time in My Garden

I have been feeling a bit under the weather lately from an inner ear condition and so I have been spending a lot of time when I can in my garden. I started this garden series all shot on my iPhone 5s, these are some of my favorites. Follow me and the series on instagram @valrizzo.
