Old Field Vineyards-Unkempt WASP Splendor on the North Fork

We have been acquainted with Ros and Christian Baiz for several years and even helped them harvest grapes one recent November a few years ago. There vineyard was not fully realized then and there tasting room was little more than a porch and a couple of wines and now there vineyard is more mature and they have upgraded the tasting room to four walls and a couple of windows.

Don't think me unkind, the charm of the place is the un-slick, makeshift quality of the operation. The vineyard sits on the family property and there is a definite non-commercial, rustic feel to the thing. The wines have matured and the selection is more sophisticated than a few years back. Indeed, the "Rooster Tail" offering is one of the best wine values in the increasingly expensive world of Long Island North Fork Wines.
