One may not expect to find sparkling wine of such excellent caliber on the North Fork of Long Island. But allow yourself to be mistaken: Sparkling Pointe makes amazing sparkling wine. In fact, you may just get carried away and think you’re drinking very fine champagne! True story.
The 2010 Topaz Imperial is a favorite at Sparkling Pointe: Soft, pale pink bubbles. Rich and light watermelon and sour cherry on the palate. Delicate and simply delightful. Sparkling Pointe is the only winery on Long Island that is dedicated to the making of sparkling wine. You may call it champagne as the winemaker, Gilles Martin employs Méthode Champenoise, or the champagne method used in France. Simply meaning that their sparkling wine is made in the exact same method as champagne is made in France. Either way, you’re going to love it.
Sparkling Pointe has become a bit of a destination. With its grand tasting room and gorgeous sparkling decor, you will feel quite ready for a glass of bubbly! With jazz and Bossa Nova afternoons on the patio, or cozy days by the fireplace and their extensive pairings menu, expect to enjoy part of your day here. Local oysters and chocolate tastings are only part of the fun at Sparkling Pointe! Check back often as they always have neat events planned for both members and visitors alike. Hands down, Sparkling Pointe has the friendliest, best staff on Long Island. You always feel welcome and taken care of here.
Sparkling Pointe is always a stop on my Long Island wine tour. Enjoy!
