Peter & Deborah Carroll were, and are, as committed to quality as the Lenzes. In pursuit of that objective, they selected Eric Fry as winemaker and Sam McCullough as vineyard manager. These two additions have solidified The Lenz Winery’s reputation not merely as one of the original North Fork wineries, but one that has consistently, over almost 4 decades, produced rich, complex, food-friendly wines that only get better with age.
I had the warmest welcome at @lenzwine
I went there because I am writing a blog about my top 10 favorite wineries of the North Fork (there are over 50 wineries here!) and Lenz is definitely one of them. I got some rosé and a bottle of their new cab franc, as a Mother’s Day gift for a very special woman in my life who’s an amazing mother to her own two children, since my mom passed away last year.
Macy welcomed me with kindness and handed me a gift from Jerol, Director of Sales.
Their rosé is dangerous, I could drink it like water, it’s that delish!
They respect social distancing - you order and they deliver or you can pick up your goods that are gently put on a table by the door as you go into the tasting room for you to pick up. It was nice to be able to physically go inside and see what it’s like. It’s such a beautiful space and the courtyard is also charming and marvelous with a touch of German biergartens feel to it.
I could imagine how delightful it would be to come here in the summer and wine taste for hours!
Follow them at @lenzwine and order your vino or take a drive there and enjoy the scenery!
