|Availability:||In stock (10)|
Long Island natives Erik Longabardi and Benford Lepley set up shop in the garage of Erik's childhood home in Roslyn, NY with the goal of creating beverages that express the native terroirs of their ingredients. They released their first vintage in 2017, and since then they've introduced several thoughtful wines and ciders from various like-minded organic growers from Long Island and Upstate New York. This project is, first and foremost, a labor of love and and an exploratory project, and we are really enjoying being along for the ride. They're pressing apples with a simple basket press and foot stomping their grapes. They bottle by hand and everything is made without filtration or enough sulfur to mention. Every bottling is a pure expression of its' origin. It's a joy to be able to drink and share these bottles!
"Uplands" apples come from an organic orchard in Ancram, NY using varieties like Goldrush, Harrison and Wickson Crab. It's laser sharp and acid-driven, uniquely textural with firm structure and character to spare. One of a kind.
