And I will also say, that to me, some of the best winemakers on the east coast reside on Long Island…Richard Olsen-Harbich, Roman Roth, Eric Fry, Giles Martin, Russell Hearn, the list goes on and on. The wines are incredible. The wines get high 80s and lows 90s scores. And arguably, the best local wine blog, now called the New York Cork Report, still resides on the Island as well (though it now serves the entire state with correspondents in Niagara, the Finger Lakes, and other regions, as well as having cheese and food writers as well).
So how is it that no one is talking about Long Island wine? What is going on?
