Suffolk County, better known as the North Fork of Long Island, New York is a relatively young wine region. However the land has a rich agricultural history.

In 1986, the North Fork was awarded AVA status. Eventually the Hargraves sold their winery to Italian wine-making nobles Marie and Marco Borghese, who converted it to Castello di Borghese in 1999. By then, the North Fork was well on its way to becoming a region known for diverse and quality wines, with dozens of producers. 
 
The North Fork is a peninsula that juts out into Long Island Sound and the Peconic Bay. The climate is maritime, with cooling effects from the water that afford a long growing season. However, it can also be subject Read more »

  • Pellegrini Vineyards Rose North Fork of Long Island 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Fruity bubble gum floral aromas with fresh peach and gummy candy on the nose. A bit tart, a bit zesty and a bit bold on the palate with good depth of cranberry and cherry fruit and a long streak of earth on the finish. Read More

  • Lieb Cellars Blanc de Blancs Reserve 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Soft hay, white blossom and pear aromas. A hint of sweet spice on entry, this tingles on the palate and comes with fresh lemon, pink grapefruit and a full texture. Turns creamy on the finish, with pastry cream and butter, a touch of tangerine and a light citrus and apple finish. Read More
