Here’s What They’re Saying

“Buying, cellaring and drinking Pellegrini Vineyards wines is like doing business with a good banker: You can count on a solid return on your money.”
New York Times

“Pellegrini Vineyards on the climatically warmer north fork has a solid track record for making excellent reds including Merlot, Cabernet Franc & Cabernet Sauvignon.”
Wine Spectator

“Long Island’s most enchantingly designed winery…Opulent Merlot, stylish Chardonnay, Bordeaux-like Cabernet Sauvignon… inspired winemaking… Exceptionally flavorful wines.”
Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Encyclopedia of Wine

“Pellegrini Vineyards makes some of the best wines on Long Island… satisfying, well-priced wines.”
Newsday

“One of Long Island’s premier Chardonnays.”
Food & Wine Magazine’s Official Wine Guide

“The word is out that Pellegrini is the rising (if not the established) star in the Long Island firmament… these are not wines that simply show the possibilities of Long Island. They are comparable right now to West Coast successes and they are well worth seeking out.”
The Herald-Sun, Durham, N.C.

“Pellegrini makes some of Long Island’s finest, most serious wines. Among Australian-born winemaker Russell Hearn’s many successes are Vintner’s Pride Chardonnay, a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon and a lively Merlot.”
The Wine News
Marguerite Thomas, author, “Wineries of the Eastern States”

“Packed with flavor, the Pellegrini Vineyards Merlot will outclass any Merlot at the price.”
