Vineyard History

The Petrocelli Family strives to produce Long Island's greatest wines, incorporating both New World advances and Old World traditions. They are located on the North Fork of Long Island, where the gentle maritime influence of the surrounding water provides a moderate climate allowing their grapes to fully ripen, achieving perfect balance, aroma, and flavor. Raphael is one of the few wine estates in the United States that harvest entirely by hand. Work carries on until the carefully chosen moment-when the harvest starts and the grapes are gathered by hand in the traditional and time-honored way. Using sustainable vineyard practices, hand harvesting, spontaneous fermentation and a natural winemaking philosophy, Raphael produces hand-crafted wines that reflect a pure expression of the unique climate and soil of the North Fork.
