Explore Kontokosta Winery
In June of 2013, Greenport unveiled its first winery: Kontokosta Winery. Located just up the road from the Harborfront Inn at 825 North Road, it is the North Fork’s first tasting room and winery with a waterfront location. Owned by the proprietors of the Harborfront Inn, the Greenport winery is situated on 62 acres, including over a quarter-mile of breathtaking Long Island Sound waterfront. Encompassing approximately 9,000 square feet, the sustainable and LEED Certified winery also features an impressive great room, a private mezzanine space and a winemaking facility.
The first vines at Kontokosta Winery were planted in 2002. The vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Riesling. With only 3,500 cases made annually, these limited production wines are available for purchase at the winery, through the wine club and on the Kontokosta Winery website.
Visitors entering the Kontokosta gates approach up a long drive through the vineyard to the winery building, which is located towards the back of the farm amongst 20 acres of open fields and seasonal gardens. Guests are invited to taste wine while taking advantage of the beautiful setting in the comfort of the tasting room, or outdoors on the waterside and vineyard bluestone terraces or out at the bluff overlooking the beautiful Long Island Sound. Private tours are available by appointment and include an exclusive tasting hosted by a member of the knowledgeable staff. The Kontokosta Winery is a unique venue for weddings, corporate retreats and other private events. The farm offers ample outdoor space for tented functions and intimate indoor gathering space for smaller occasions.
