The 19th Annual Downtown Seder Returns on April 8th!


Downtown Seder 2019 featuring an all-star line-up of performers and VIPs who will dine among guests and leading New York in City Winery’s wildly imaginative and interactive 19th annual Passover Seder dinner, hosted by City Winery founder Michael Dorf.

The 2019 Downtown Seder will feature guests seated at elegant, long family-style tables, each set with the traditional accoutrements, including Seder plate and Matzoh. Performers, who are seated with guests throughout the room, will creatively expound on various sections of the Passover Haggadah (Seder text), which has been specially developed for this night. In an approximately 2 hours program, all of the customary traditions will be followed, including drinking of four glasses of wine (produced by City Winery), discussing the four different children, reciting the four questions, and eating a delicious  vegetarian meal  (kosher option avail per request) prepared by City Winery’s Executive Chef

What makes the Downtown Seder different from all other Seders is the addition of artists each offering their unique interpretation of the important lessons from the timeless Exodus story – the universal message of the journey from slavery to freedom.

“The Downtown Seder is specifically being held prior to the start of Passover so that guests might bring the inspiration into their homes and make their own Seder dinner more relevant,” said Dorf.

A limited number of tickets for the City Winery Seder are available, priced at $70, $110, $145. Vegetarian and kosher-style meals are included, with a Glatt Kosher option available for an additional $25.00/person.

This year we will be taking the Downtown Seder on the road so please tell you friends and family!

NYC Location Update From Michael Dorf

Dear Friends,

I wanted to start out by saying Happy New Year and take this opportunity to catch you up on some exciting City Winery news. First off, as some of you may already know, our City Winery New York is moving into a new location which we will announce very soon. The final details are being worked out, but our new flagship location will be everything we have ever dreamed of in New York City creating what we believe will be the greatest venue and urban winery in the world. We are taking all that we have learned in our 10 years as City Winery and bringing it together. We are raising the bar on what a 350-seat concert venue can be, complete with spectacular private event spaces, world-class kitchen facilities and urban winemaking. In addition to this, everyone is going to get very excited about the location…it’s incredible!

We are building two new locations this year, a full City Winery location in the heart of Philadelphia and our first rural City Winery in the Hudson Valley, about 75 minutes North of Manhattan. This upstate facility is a 22-acre almost two century old “knitting factory” with buildings we are turning from a 130-year old mill into a winery and event space and outdoor junkyards into vineyards. This hub of our East Coast winemaking will be the perfect place for outdoor weddings, events, and we will be growing our veggies to bring back to the City. The location is also 100% net power neutral as it has a hydro-electric plant and we are adding solar to support all our operations. We continue to strive to reduce our carbon footprint and support our local communities.

Lastly, I wanted to mention that our locations in Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta and recent openings in Boston and Washington DC are all doing really well we are so thrilled to have extended our City Winery family welcoming new VinoFiles from all over the country. While growth continues to happen in our future, we can hardly contain our excitement about our NYC move, as it is my home. After 10 years of tremendous learning and understanding both our customers and our performing artists, we can’t wait to provide the ultimate home for both—a cozy state-of-the-art facility to indulge the senses. Stay Tuned…

Michael Dorf
