Each week, we’ll be spotlighting a different North Fork winery, showcasing their history and how you can support them at this time. Chronicle Wines is located on Peconic Lane in Peconic. Since COVID-19 hit, the team shifted gears to focus on digital sales and broaden their shipping abilities. You can pick up from their tasting room Friday through Monday from noon to 7 p.m.
Name: Chronicle Wines
Year founded: 2017
Acres: They source grapes from Long Island, the Hudson Valley and the Finger Lakes and make their wines at a communal processing facility in Mattituck.

History: Chronicle winemakers Alie Shaper and Robin Epperson-McCarthy opened their North Fork tasting room in 2017 as a hub for the community to experience all five of their wine brands (Brooklyn Oenology, Saltbird Cellars, As If Wines, Haywater Cove and VINette) and in 2019, they launched Chronicle Wines, a collective encompassing their wines, collaborations, tasting room and events.
How you can support them: You can purchase wine from Chronicle Wines on its website for pickup or have it shipped (they ship to 40 states!). They also sell through retailers throughout Long Island and New York City.
