    Winemaker Notes

    Redolence of black cherry and warm plum with hints of strawberry and raspberry lead to a mouth-filling sensation. To complete this wonderful sensory experience, pair C-Block South with lamb or better yet, Long Island Duck.

    Bedell Cellars Winery Image
    Bedell Cellars is a boutique farm winery and vineyard located in the small hamlet of Cutchogue, on the North Fork of Long Island. The North Fork is a narrow strip of land wedged between the Long Island Sound to the north, and the Peconic Bay to the south. This proximity to water, and our latitude combine to create a maritime "micro-climate" which provides optimum growing conditions for grapes. It is said to be similar to that of Bordeaux, France.

    Cutchogue currently is the center of the North Fork's increasingly renowned wine industry. Prior to the 1970's the North Fork mainly produced potatoes, cauliflower and fruit. Now, almost 2000 acres are planted in wine grapes, with more acreage being planted daily. Vineyards help keep our fork the uniquely scenic, serene, rural, agricultural maritime area it is.

    The vineyard and winery were established in 1980 by Kip and Susan Bedell with the planting of seven acres. The vineyard has since expanded to thirty-two acres planted with the following varieties: Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier and Petite Verdot.

    On August 10, 2000 Michael Lynne became the new owner of Bedell Cellars. Mr. Lynne and Kip Bedell, who remains the winemaker, will continue to work closely together focusing entirely on quality. Mr. Lynne is an avid wine enthusiast and president of New Line Cinema.

    Increasingly garnering widespread and well-deserved attention, New York ranks third in wine production in the United States (after California and Washington). Divided into six AVAs—the Finger Lakes, Lake Erie, Hudson River, Long Island, Champlain Valley of New York and the Niagara Escarpment, which crosses over into Michigan as well as Ontario, Canada—the state experiences varied climates, but in general summers are warm and humid while winters are very cold and can carry the risk of frost well into the growing season.

    The Finger Lakes region has long been responsible for some of the country’s finest Riesling, and is gaining traction with elegant, light-bodied Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. Experimentation with cold-hardy European varieties is common, and recent years have seen the successful planting of grapes like Grüner Veltliner and Saperavi (from the Eastern European country of Georgia). Long Island, on the other hand, has a more maritime climate influenced by the Atlantic Ocean, and shares some viticultural characteristics with Bordeaux. Accordingly, the best wines here are made from Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Niagara Escarpment is responsible for excellent ice wines, usually made from the hybrid variety, Vidal.
