A balanced and refreshing Chardonnay with expressive fruit and complex savory minerality. Made from hand-harvested grapes farmed sustainably on our estate from multiple clones on different field sites. The 2016 vintage provided exceptional, nearly perfect growing conditions. James Suckling, former Editor of Wine Spectator, said “Fresh apple with milk and honey. Some tropical fruit. Medium to full with creamy texture.”
Our Sauvignon Blanc is made by gently pressing whole clusters of sustainably farmed, estate grown fruit from our sites at Bedell and Corey Creek. It is then fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in steel to maximize its youthfulness and aromatic character. The 2016 vintage was unique and exceptional. Mark Squires of the Wine Advocate said “Many on the East Coast make fruity Sauvignon with grass and green notes. What they sometimes lack, however, is some zing and zest - I love the way Bedell's Sauvignons accomplish that.”

A balanced and refreshing Chardonnay with expressive fruit and complex savory minerality. Made from hand-harvested grapes farmed sustainably on our estate from multiple clones on different field sites.

Our Viognier grows on some of the oldest vines in North America. Fragrant and fruit forward, with a flinty minerality, the wine is fermented in steel from our sustainably grown grapes using indigenous yeasts.

Cabernet Franc 2015
Our hand selected clones of this ancient noble grape are producing stunning wines. Aged in older French oak barrels to preserve its elegance and finesse, this wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts using our sustainably farmed estate grapes. The 2015 vintage was unique and exceptional. James Molesworth of the Wine Spectator said “[Rich Olsen-Harbich's] experience shows in the Bedell Cabernet Franc North, which offers a pure beam of red currant and bitter cherry fruit laced with subtle minerality and carried by moderate but persistent grip.”
Taste Red 2014
Full of dark juicy fruit, Taste Red has ripe and soft tannins complemented by a deep mouthwatering complexity. The 2013 vintage was unique and exceptional, perhaps the greatest growing season in 40 years of Long Island winemaking. Thomas Matthews of Wine Spectator said “Ripe, juicy flavors of black cherry and plum mingle with savory notes of dark chocolate and dried herb in this expressive red. Features a solid structure but remains graceful through the spicy finish.”
