The Long Island wine region is located on two peninsula forks in the U.S. state of New York, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the south, Great Peconic Bay in the middle and Long Island Sound to the north. Known for its unique glacial soils and maritime climates, the environment is characterized by warm summer days and nights. The sandy loam soil allows for ideal control of vine growth and promotion of ripe grapes for harvest.
