Vineyards and Wineries on the North Fork of Long Island

Yes, the Hamptons on the South Fork of Long Island has those beautiful white sand beaches, while our lovely North Fork beaches are pebbly. It’s true. But if you love to be where the wine is, the Vineyards and Wineries on the North Fork of Long Island. So when you stay at our B&B near Greenport, NY, you’ll be close to the majority of the wineries.
Far and away, the North Fork is where most Long Island wineries are clustered. The clustering is partly because of the sunny yet protected maritime climate. The glacial soils also drain well while providing enough nutrients and moisture for the vines. Many people on the East Coast still don’t realize that a tremendous wine-producing area is only a short drive away! However, wine lovers have gotten the message. The wine-making industry has grown considerably since the first winery, Hargrave Vineyards in Cutchogue, opened in 1975. It is now called The Borghese Vineyard. The Long Island Wine Region now has over 55 wineries open to the public, with 4000+ acres of vines.

The American Viticultural Areas of Long Island–North Fork of Long Island, The Hamptons, and Long Island, are recognized as some of the country’s finest grape growing and wine producing AVAs.

Most of the acreage is Vinifera grapes. The main varietals are Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, but others include Chenin Blanc, Dolcetto, Gewurztraminer, Lemberger, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sangiovese, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Syrah, Tocai Friulano, and Viognier.
The wineries of Long Island frequently have events throughout the year, such as  WinterFest, in the winter months, Summer Wine Camps, North Fork Crush in June, and Wine Spectator’s Harvest East End in September. Beyond these special events, most wineries on Long Island offer both tastings and tours. For more information about the Long Island Wine Country.

Great wines are produced only a short drive from New York City and other major East Coast cities. Come to Long Island’s North Fork and experience some of the best wines in the U.S. without traveling very far! Our Bed and Breakfast near Greenport is just the place to stay during your East End Long Island wineries tour.

Enjoy a Long Island Wine Country VacationYou’ve survived the holidays and now it’s time for some well-deserved rest and relaxation to kick off the New Year right – but what to do? How about a Long Island Wine Country getaway?
You might think winery tours and tastings are an activity more suited to warmer times of the year. Let’s face it: a glass of wine with friends is fine whenever it happens. Besides, enjoying a glass of wine while snuggled up next to a crackling fire? That sounds even better, somehow doesn’t it?
