I live on long island, ny. Our vineyards here have proven to be fine wine and can keep up with the big boys. Over the year's the Winerys have attracted some of the finest wine makers from the world over. I enjoy visiting a variety of local vineyards, and have started to collect some of the libery wines, I must say it can be very hard to keep them cellered, as they are too good to to wait for them. I love certain cab franc's and the blends are so yummy its hard not to drink them as soon as you buy them. I guess I'm telling you more about the vineyards then I am myself. I enjoy gardening, picnics on the beach, which is not more then a stones throw, I live on the north shore, which is the long island sound, the ocean is on the south. Some of our beaches are breathtaking, add the vineyards and its almost paradise. I'm married, with 4 grown children, and have two standerd poodles who keep me company while I garden, and relax at night with a glass of wine.
I love to smell the fruit, try and pick out the different notes, spices ect. Some times I feel like a cab, then a malbac, pinot Noir, reds are my favorite, but I have found several white's I truly enjoy.
