If you’ve never tried New York wine before, now is your chance to discover this up-and-coming star estate from Long Island. Bedell was one of the pioneering wineries on Long Island. Bedell's current owner, Michael Lynne (Executive Producer of the Lord of the Rings trilogy), has continued the tradition begun by Kip Bedell in 1985 and has set the standard for quality among Long Island wine estates with a state-of-the-art winery and a world-class winemaking team.
The wines are made entirely from estate-grown grapes, from the 32 acres of vineyards surrounding the winery on the North Fork of Long Island. First Crush Red is made from 56% Merlot and 44% Cabernet Franc. Winemakers Kelly Urbank and Pascal Marty vinify this mouth-filling wine in stainless steel employing partial carbonic maceration to capture the best the fruit has to offer.
