It looks like D.C. could be getting its first winery. A "multipurpose facility" called District Winery has applied for a liquor license at 385 Water St. SE. An Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration notice says the place is looking to have 450 seats (with a total capacity for 750) plus dancing, a 100-seat summer garden, and a wine pub.
It appears that the winery comes from the people behind Brooklyn Winery in New York. (The LLC behind District Winery is registered with Brooklyn Winery's Williamsburg address.) Y&H has contacted Brooklyn Winery for more information. Stay tuned for updates.
