VINEYARD HISTORY

Macari Vineyards, located on the North Fork of Long Island in Mattituck, New York, is owned and operated by the Macari Family. The Macaris are careful environmental stewards of the land − what was once potato fields has been transformed to a 200 acre vinegarden with additional fields of compost and fallow farmland. Macari Vineyards is also a home to Texas longhorns, Spanish goats, Sicilian donkeys, horses, ducks and rabbits. Alongside acres of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viogner, Grüner Veltliner, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Pinot Gris, Pinot Meunier and Syrah, members of the Macari team frequently spot blue herons, red tail hawks, vultures, ospreys, eagles, red foxes and groundhogs. The biodiversity of the Macari family farm provides an extraordinary grape growing environment that yields some of the finest fruit on the East Coast. Joseph Macari Jr. is considered to be a pioneer in the movement towards natural farming on Long Island through his adoption of biodynamic principals since the vineyard’s first plantings. The tasting will feature a selection of their best wines including a Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Franc.
