Discover the Wines of Long Island

Quick Details

The eastern shores of Long Island are producing stunning wines that are hailed by metro New Yorkers, but are surprisingly undiscovered by those upstate and beyond.

Join Certified Sommelier Laura Winter Falk for a 2-hour deep dive into the wines of  6 Long Island producers. Last November, she spent two days meeting the top producers in the area and tasting their wines, and was blown away!

During this session you will:

  • Learn about eastern Long Island’s terroir cool maritime influences with sandy, loamy soils and its impact on its wines.
  • Discover six of the most exciting producers.  Hear the story behind each of these farm wineries and the passion they each bring to their winemaking.
  • Taste six distinctive wines from Traditional Method sparkling and mineral-driven whites to bold and expressive reds.  Learn about the European varietals that thrive in Long Island’ distinctive climate and terroir.
  • Experience each of the wines paired with sommelier-selected foods from the farms and food producers in Long Island and Metro New York, including cheese, charcuterie and caviar!
