Publisher's Summary

Profiling owners, winemakers, and personalities from around the country and the world, Behind the Bottle is a fun and intriguing look at the people who have made Long Island into one of the hottest wine regions in the country.

Long Island has been a leader in winemaking since 1975. In the last 40 years, Long Island's rise has been meteoric. Long a rural region famed for its duck and its potatoes, Long Island, now visited by 1.3 million people each year, has carved out a wine country second to none. With highly acclaimed wines garnering rave reviews from Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and many other publications, Long Island wines have been celebrated around the country and across the Atlantic Ocean.

Here, Edible East End editor Eileen M. Duffy profiles winemakers and wineries that have received this high acclaim and shares their stories. Men and women from as far away as California, France, even New Zealand have come here to create a wine country whose wines, including Chardonnay, Sauvingon Blanc, Merlot, and Meritages, among others, are second to none. Behind the Bottle illustrates the fascinating story from the region's birth to its zenith.
