Long Island

About Long Island

Located in southeast New York State, the Long Island Wine Region is structured around three AVAs: North Fork of Long Island, The Hamptons and the all-encompassing Long Island AVA. The maritime-influenced climate welcomes Bordeaux varieties, including Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with Chardonnay, and Riesling also showing a strong presence. Compared to the cooler Finger Lakes region located in the northern part of the state, Long Island sees a growing season that’s nearly three weeks longer.
