The North Fork Winery You Shouldn’t Miss Out On
With so many wineries to choose from on Long Island’s beautiful North Fork, how do you pick just one to visit if you’re on a tight schedule? Just ask the knowledgeable staff members here at the Harborfront Inn, who will guide you right up the road to our sister property, Kontokosta Winery.
Kontokosta Winery’s setting is nothing short of spectacular (so much so that North Forker magazine described it as “one of the North Fork’s most striking”). Not only does Kontokosta feature beautifully landscaped grounds, but it also offers picturesque, panoramic views of the Long Island Sound from its bluff-top perch.
Not only is Kontokosta Winery’s tasting room sustainably built, incorporating reclaimed and recycled woods and metals, but the vineyard’s management team is also dedicated to sustainable agricultural practices, ensuring that the surrounding environment and ecosystem remain in balance. This commitment, coupled with a winemaking philosophy that combines the latest technical innovations with centuries-old traditions, is a reflection of the high standards that have become associated with Long Island wines. We grow our grapes on our 24 acres, and the vineyard is powered by a wind turbine.
In case you were wondering, yes, Kontokosta is a family name, and yes, the Kontokosta family not only established the winery, but continues to oversee the management of farm operations. This personal attention to the vines helps maximize fruit quality and ripeness, and helps ensure consistent and finely crafted wine from vintage to vintage.
