Lieb Cellars was founded in 1992 and debuted with their first line of reserve wines in 1999, which quickly gained them national recognition for the reserve Pinot Blanc and the Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine. The next year, they opened their first tasting room on the North Fork of Long Island in Mattituck, NY. As wineries do when they become more popular, Lieb Cellars began to expand production, and, in 2004, introduced their Bridge Lane series: lighter, fruitier “every day” wines, which were offered at a more affordable price point.
In 2012, Lieb Cellars opened a second tasting room on the rustic, rural Oregon Road in Cutchogue, NY. As they continued to evolve, the vineyard merged with Premium Wine Goup, the custom crush facility where they were making their wine, and both businesses were recapitalized by Southport Lane, a private equity firm.
Now, in 2014, Lieb Cellars wines are being widely distributed to venues including Citi Field; JFK Terminals 2, 4, and 5; Lincoln Financial Field; and the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Lieb Cellars wines can also be found in restaurants and liquor stores all over New York, PLCB liquor stores in Pennsylvania, and in the New York Wine Outlet in Shanghai, China. Now producing two private labels for Tom Colicchio’s Craft restaurants and the Topping Rose House, Lieb Cellars has evolved into a diverse winery and a trusted name in the wine world.
