Castello di Borghese For Sale

Lenndevours, one of my favorite blogs, hands down, reported today that Hargrave/Castello di Borghese is for sale. Lenn Thompson, wine blogger extraordinaire, reported the sale. He wrote:

"As of last weekend, my favorite Long Island pinot noir producer, in Cutchogue, went on the market for $9.2 million. The entire estate is included — 85 acres (25 planted with vines), winery, tasting room, warehouse and beautiful family farmhouse.

"Before current owners Marco and Ann Marie Borghese bought the property in 1999, the property was known as Hargrave Vineyard — Long Island's first commercial vineyard, founded in 1973 by Alex and Louisa Hargrave. The Borgheses bought the vineyard and winery for $4 million."
