One of Wölffer Estate Vineyard’s wines just received a rating of 94 by Wine Enthusiast magazine, tying for Long Island’s highest score ever given by a wine critic.
That bottle, Wölffer’s Descencia Botrytis Late Harvest Riesling/Chardonnay 2015, also made Wine Enthusiast’s list of the Top 100 Wines of 2016. (more…)

With those long summer days coming to an end, many wineries have begun to reduce their hours.
But if you find the evening is getting late and you still want to sip a while longer, here are eight tasting rooms that are still serving until 7:30 p.m. or later. (more…)

Surrey Lane Vineyard Orchard Farm in Southold has released its first wines, which were created at South Fork winery Wölffer Estate Vineyard.
When David Shanks purchased the vineyard in 2011, it included mostly merlot and cabernet franc grapes, as well as an acre of chardonnay, and he sold the harvests to Wölffer.
That arrangement changed last year after he asked Wölffer winemaker Roman Roth to start making Surrey Lane wines, including chardonnay, cabernet franc, sauvignon blanc, merlot and pinot grigio.
A tasting room at the Main Road vineyard is also planned.

Now that spring has sprung, local farmer’s markets, restaurants, hotels and shops are opening at a breakneck speed.
Here is a list of East End businesses that have recently reopened or will open soon, along with the return of one of the season’s most-anticipated rosés.
