The grapes, the progeny of the soil, are the key to any successful winer y. At Peconic Bay Winery, we have been entrusted with the care and nurturing of some of the oldest vines on the North Fork, a precious legacy. These fine assets, in the hands of individuals passionate about coaxing the best from the vine and the cellar, set the stage at our vineyard for the creation of premium varietal wines. We are committed to making wines of distinction from rolling acres of vineyards, sloping gently down to the Peconic Bay and rising majestically up to the Long Island Sound, in this bucolic corner of heaven known as the North Fork. We hope to make the experience of tasting our wines enjoyable and memorable for both the connoisseur and those with a more casual appreciation of wine. We look forward to welcoming you at Peconic Bay Winery on the Main Road in Cutchogue. Our wines are the product of the soil and mild climate of Cutchogue, Long Island, the town with the most days of sunshine and the longest growing season in New York State. Read less

On Long Island, 2001 is widely regarded as a tremendous vintage – particularly for red wine. A warm growing season resulted in some of the ripest grapes in years – and that fruit quality shines through in the wines (when winemakers didn't try to make California-style wines, that is).Peconic Bay Winery's winemaker, Greg Gove, showed restraint with his 2001 Merlot. Right out of the bottle, rich, concentrated cherry, plum and chocolate flavors are nicely integrated with ripe, well-integrated tannins. But give this wine a little time open or in a decanter and you'll be rewarded with added layers of complexity in the form of summer herbs and tobacco. This is a wine that deserves more attention — and a spot in your cellar.
