Roanoke Vineyards (written Jul 18, 2011)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
Nothing bad about this place. From the moment we walked in we were promptly greeted and given a great flight of the wines here. Careful explanation of the process used there and the winemaker's attention to detail. This is all evident in the wine as we tasted our way through some exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. One thing I noticed is that Cabernet Franc along Rte 48 is completely different than that on 25. I'm still trying to deciphe that mystery as the ones on 25 seem a lot more earthy in flavor. We will be returning to this vineyard soon.

Castello di Borghese Vineyard and Winery (written Jul 18, 2011)
Wine: 1 stars Winery: 1 stars Ambiance: 1 stars
If your looking for rude, unattentive, and snobby hosts. Make this a stop. The only good thing we got from this vineyard was a picture next to the Pinot Noir truck. The flights were reasonably priced but we were given their finest clear plastic cups to taste in with just a tiny splash of wine that barely gave you any indication of what you were tasting. The bad taste in our mouths was not just left by the wine. A Long Island Wine Ambassador (how do I get this job) was there and was promptly treated with a nice glass, and free samples while we were shunned off as tourists. After the foul taste in our mouths from bland wines with little body we inquired about the purchase of logo glassware and were promptly given a "we don't sell those" which was followed by a woman who looked down at us and said "Oh, those are like $10 each". After being spoken down to we left with no purchases, maybe looking young has it's disadvantages in some places. Unfortunately for them we spent loads of our money elsewhere on better wine, so the sour taste was quickly abolished. Good luck to you Castello di Snobese Vineyard, may your attitudes chirp up and not reflect the rusty old truck parked out front.

Old Field Vineyards, The (written Jul 18, 2011)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
First stop off the Orient Point Ferry and your welcomed by a nice farm setting, complete with the morning roosters, hens, chickens, ducks, geese, an adorable 10 year old dog, and great wine. Great first stop and really gave us a good introduction to the LI wines and what we could expect.

McCall Wines (written Jul 18, 2011)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
Nestled in a converted horse barn that faces the fields away from the road you sit either at tables or in the stalls while the gracious hosts pour your selections. Fantastic atmosphere, quiet, and quality wines from people who spend time to explain them to you instead of reading from a sheet of paper. Give the Ben's Blend a try!
