Tasting Notes

Staff Pick Notes

Every wine region is know for a kind of wine or a specific grape. If the Finger Lakes of upstate New York is known for Riesling what is Long Island known for? I would suggest prehaps Rosé.

Bright clean fruit, wonderfully refreshing acidity with mineral earthiness, this wine packs a lot of delicious element into a single bottle. I would suggest buying two!
