Jamesport Vineyards is a father-son collaboration that began in 1981 at Early Rising Farm in Cutchogue, New York, making Jamesport Vineyards one of the North Fork's oldest vineyards. Sixty acres of pristine vineyards are located here, with the majority of plantings include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The high quality of our fruit is what gained Jamesport Vineyards a stellar reputation. We use only OUR own high-quality fruit for producing our award winning wines. Jamesport Vineyards is truly an estate winery.
In 1986 Ron Goerler Sr. acquired the 150-year-old barn that houses the winery and tasting room Drawing on our exceptional Cutchogue Vineyards fruit supply as well as the talents of his son, Ron Jr., he started Jamesport Vineyards in 1989. Since then, a lot has changed, both aesthetically and agriculturally. Our tasting room has increased in size and our tasting bar has been enlarged to accommodate a growing number of visitors. Additionally, a large event lawn is available for Musical events, private parties and weddings. Weekends at Jamesport often feature live music, and the ever-popular oyster bar serving the best that local waters have to offer.
Jamesport Vineyards is continuing its quest to produce World-Class wines. The Goerlers are already seeing their commitment to upgrade pay off both in sales and visibility. The number of visitors to Jamesport Vineyards continues to grow yearly, as does their collection of awards and medals. Please stop by to sample our many fine wines. The winery tasting room is open seven days a week from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M.
In our vineyards, we continue to update our plantings. Recently, two-thousand Sauvignon Blanc vines, have been planted to European spacing, which is far denser than the usual Long Island practice. This new planting is expected to produce the highest quality of fruit available in the region today. Jamesport is continually reviving and updating it's vineyards with new clones of Cabernet Franc, Dijon Chardonnay and Syrah selected from California vineyards.
*Please note Jamesport Vineyards is closed New Year's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
