The event featured excellent Rieslings from old familiar names such as Heron Hill, Dr. Frank and Herman Weimer. A Long Island winery that stood out for quality and value was Raphael – elegant Chard, Sauve Blanc and Merlot. All the Long Island wines were very French in style – look for these in NYC restaurants.
