The bubbly will likely be flowing at Sparkling Pointe this week, as the Southold winery was named “Winery of the Year” Wednesday at the New York Wine and Food Classic.
The event, considered the premier contest for New York wine, was held in upstate Watkins Glen Aug. 8-9.
The award was a tie between CK Cellars/Torrey Ridge Winery from the Finger Lakes Region and Sparkling Pointe. The North Fork vineyard, which makes exclusively sparkling wine, also won the “Best Sparkling Wine” award for its 2014 Topaz Imperial. (more…)
