Bedell Cellars is a certified sustainable, family-owned estate, making some of the most critically acclaimed wines on the North Fork of Long Island. The 80-acre estate is certified sustainable and produces hand-crafted wines that combine the most refined techniques with sustainable farming, indigenous fermentation and artistic blending. The goal is to achieve a natural balance between vine, soil and sunlight, which maximizes native aromas and flavors into the wines. This is done through a series of vineyard “best practices” which have been finely tuned over the past 30 years to minimize agricultural chemicals, protecting the farmer, environment, and society at large. Bedell Cellar is one of the only vineyards in the world fermenting with 100% naturally occurring indigenous yeasts. They have fermented over 50 small batches of wine and have produced over 34 vintages. All wines are hand crafted on their estate and the journey from vine to bottle is consistent with ancient winemaking traditions.
