Corchaug Estate Vineyard
The original vineyard that Russell McCall planted in 1997 is referred to as Corchaug Estate. This vineyard was established on land rescued from development that borders the historic Fort Corchaug site and Down's Woods preserve. The estate also includes our tasting room, an existing barn reclaimed as a place for visitors.

The southern end of the vineyard is planted with 11 acres of Pinot Noir, comprised of four clones selected from the best french clonal varieties grown in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. This is to date the largest successful Pinot Noir vineyard on Long Island.

On the north end of our farm the soil is rich with clay much like the best vineyards of Bordeaux. Here we have ten acres planted with three clones of Merlot.

Based on the french tradition, our vines are spaced closer than most in the region. We take great efforts to be meticulous and sustainable farmers, operating on the idea that great wines begin in the field.

Gristina Vineyard
Just north of Corchaug Estate (across the main road and behind the Macari tasting room) lies a vineyard planted by Gristina in 1983. The neglected old vine Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay plantings were taken over by the McCalls in 2011. As we rejuvenated this vineyard, we found that it produces stellar fruit, and expanded the plantings by adding a block of Sauvignon Blanc when we purchased the property in 2013. The land is unique in its hilly relief and the inclusion of a large dry kettle hole, nestled in a parcel of protected forest. Surely the glacial terroir will affect not just the drainage of the vines but the characteristics of the resulting wines.
