Bob and Joyce Pellegrini founded Pellegrini Vineyards in 1982. The 30 acre home vineyard in Cutchogue, New York contains some of the oldest vines on Long Island. Two additional properties down the road were purchased in 1998 South Harbor Vineyard with 14 acres and the Richmond Creek Vineyard with 28 acres, both sited on well drained loam with southern exposure.
Through extensive soil preparation, careful clonal and rootstock selection and progressive growing methods, Pellegrini takes advantage of eastern Long Island’s climactic and soil conditions, using young vines and some purchased fruit to produce their East End Select line of wines.
(98% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot) Aged for 20 months in French and Hungarian oak, this estate red is sourced from the oldest vines at the estate. Bottled unfiltered.
