This Massachusetts native sought out a job, because the North Fork is “the most interesting place on the East Coast to make wine.”
You’ll never guess which one got the most votes! (You probably will.)
Forty years ago a car ride down the Main Road on the North Fork meant something quite different than it does today. The landscape was still agriculture, broken at intervals by small towns. But it didn’t mean wine country: there were no tasting rooms nor grape vines to the horizon.
Long Island is making it into international markets.
A few of our favorite wineries are featured in the September issue of Wine Enthusiast magazine. Click on the image above to read about the wines, from sparkling to cab franc, to a sauvignon blanc blend, a rosé of pinot noir and a dessert wine. Congrats to all.
An experiment with North Fork pinot noir enjoys a rosy future.
