Long Island, Hudson River Valley, New England wineries?

I've recently relocated to the Northeast (Providence area) and I'm interested in visiting wineries within a few hours drive. Does anyone have any favorites from this region? I recall enjoying some wines from Macari and Pellegrini in the past, but it was several years ago. Has anyone visited those wineries recently? Anything interesting being produced in New England? Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. I have no personal experience. Some wineries with a decent reputation.

    New York:

    Hermann J. Wiemer
    Paumanok
    Shinn Estate Vineyards

    I wasn't aware of any winery of real interest in New England.

      The only one I've had experience with is Westport Vineyards, not far from Providence.

        I've can only speak to the Sakonnet Vineyard in Little Compton. We stayed for a weekend and had a tour of the vineyard, a tour through the wine making building and finally a wine-tasting in the tasting room. The guest house was charming with full breakfast included. The tours were informative and fun. The wine tasting was all inclusive. We went home with a mixed case of wines that we enjoyed...

          The only one I'm familiar with is the Shelburne Vineyard. Just over the bridge from Ticonderoga, .4 miles from Shelburne.
