Our grapes are grown on 5 vineyard sites totaling 94 acres, all planted on sandy-loam soils less than a mile from the Long Island Sound or Peconic Bay.
We have 16 vinifera varieties planted (Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Teroldego, Lagrein, Golden Muscatel) and are proud to say that our vines are some of the oldest on Long Island.
The Riesling and Cabernet Franc at our Main Road Vineyard were planted in 1981 shortly after the “founding” of our region in 1973. Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc at the Bridge Lane Vineyard followed in 1983. The vines at Oregon Road West were planted in 1997, and in 1999 we planted the reds at the Oregon Road vineyard. Finally, Syrah, Teroldego, Lagrein and Golden Muscatel were planted in 2013 at a vineyard that we lease in Southold (vineyard map coming). We boast the largest contiguous plot of Pinot Blanc in the US at 14 acres.
