It's a North Fork double-header!  Join us for a special virtual tasting with Sparkling Pointe and Rockwell Wines, two (2) wineries from the North Fork of Long Island. Though they come from the same region, on the surface, these wineries have nothing in common. One is known for its sparkling wines, the other full bodied reds. What they have in common is our special guest, winemaker Andrew Rockwell.
