Join the New-York Historical Society and Caffè Storico for A Taste of New-York Wines. Throughout the summer we will be hosting a series of Saturday wine tastings featuring vineyards from all over New York State, highlighting their products with discussion of the wine-making process and the history of the vineyards. For more information, please e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org.
As described by the Long Island Wine Council, Robert Palmer founded Palmer Vineyards in 1986 on a rolling parcel of gravelly farmland in Riverhead on the North Fork of Long Island. The Palmer team strives to uphold Bob Palmer’s pledge of quality. “I’ve got to be careful,” Palmer says. “My name is on every bottle.” The fine seaside climate and soils of Long Island’s North Fork provide exceptional conditions for making world-class varietal wines. With more than 90 acres planted with Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc to supply the winery’s 16,000 annual case production, Palmer strives to preserve and enhance the purity of flavor and distinctive, fresh character which make the region’s wines so unique. Palmer operates a state-of-the art winery and each year purchases substantial new French oak cooperage for both barrel fermentation of its Chardonnay and the aging of its premium red varietals.
