Channing Daughters is a boutique vineyard and winery located in beautiful Bridgehampton, New York – and they are changing the game with their fun and approachable take on wine making. The Hamptons isn’t lacking with its vineyard options, especially with easy access to the North Fork of Long Island where even more call your name to visit. But, Channing Daughters is a place to be casual and taste wines that you might not have ever run across before.
Of course the vineyard plants the typical grapes like Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and others – but, it’s what’s done in the wine making process that is most interesting. The setting is beautiful and a perfect place to spend an afternoon tasting what winemaker Christopher Tracy has been developing lately. The staff here encourages experimentation and never wants they guests to feel intimidates by their wines. So, feel free to let your hair down.
A few of the winery’s acclaimed wines include a Petit Verdot, Lagrein, a Dornfelder and Sauvignon Blanc. During your tasting, you can mix and match or try whatever is open that day. You’ll even spot a white variety that has a red finish – delightful. If you’re in the Hamptons, please don’t miss it.
