far and away but worth it: wölffer estate vineyard

DSC_0578Long Island is known for many things – the glitterati who flock to the Hamptons, farming, beaches, lighthouses, and also vineyards.  My pretty much favorite is DSC_0665 Wölffer Estate.

Wölffer Estate is located in the Hamptons in Sagaponack. Their wines are good DSC_0661and to me something very important – they use all their own grapes.

A few weeks ago I made my annual trek to the vineyard. This time I tasted dessert DSC_0629wines and also had a marvelous time photographing the vineyard and stocking up on the rosé wines they produce.  A good rosé is my summer wine of choice and truthfully I enjoy rosés year round – I don’t drink very much and am allergic to many types of alcohol and never acquired a taste for beer, so I am pretty limited as to what I will imbibe.

You can find some Wölffer in the Pennyvania Wine and Spirit Shops (a/k/a State Stores) but not all the time. If you ever go to the Hamptons check them out and take the time for one of their wine tastings. So fun, lovely setting, terrific experience.
