An insiders tour of one of Americas leading new wine regions—with profiles of more than forty wine producers, lush color photographs, and recipes by top local chefs
 
From the Introduction

Its your first trip to eastern Long Island. . . . The tension in your shoulders starts to melt as you realize youve finally traveled beyond the land of megamalls, giant chain stores, and endless car lots.

Soon you catch your first glimpse of a vineyard basking in the sun, its broad leaves silently turning sunlight into sugar, ripening Vitis vinifera, the European grapes that make the worlds finest wines. For a moment you might imagine youve been mysteriously wafted to the French countryside, but no, this is the East End of Long Island, the most exciting new wine region in North America. Youve reached your destination, but your journey of discovery has barely begun. . . .

Synopsis:

Written by the editor of Long Island Wine Press magazine—with a foreword by Louisa Thomas Hargrave, cofounder of Long Islands first vineyard, and sumptuously illustrated by an award-winning photographer—this book takes readers to each of the areas more than forty producers, telling the colorful stories of the wines and the people who make them.

Synopsis:

Well over 3,000 acres on Long Islands beautiful East End have been planted with European wine grape varieties over the last three decades, and the vineyards are widely credited with keeping this beautiful landscape—officially designated one of the “Last Great Places” by The Nature Conservancy—green and growing. Add to that the recent praise for wine producers like Bedell Cellars, The Lenz Winery, and Wölffer Estate Vineyards (among numerous others) from sources like the New York Times, Wine Spectator, and Wine Advocate, and its not difficult to see why the New York Times, in a feature on Long Island wines, captioned a photo with the words, “Who needs Bordeaux? A tasting of wines from the East End.”

Synopsis:

More than 3,000 acres on Long Island’s beautiful East End have been planted with European wine grapes in recent decades, and over one million visitors stream to the region each year. Add to this the praise for local wines from many leading publications, and it’s not difficult to see why the New York Times captioned a photo accompanying an article on Long Island wines with, “Who needs Bordeaux?”

 

Long Island Wine Country introduces readers to the area’s forty-three wine producers, taking them behind the scenes to meet the people who make the wine. Interspersed throughout are recipes from leading local chefs for delicious dishes to pair with the wines, as well as 100 lush color photographs.
