Brandy, From a Long Island Winemaker

Category: Food & Drink,Lifestyle

Wölffer Estate Vineyard has gradually broadened its portfolio beyond wine to include other alcoholic drinks, like distilled spirits. It has a gin on the roster, and now, the winemaker and partner, Roman Roth, has created a brandy for Wölffer, something he has wanted to do for years. The spirit is made in a traditional copper pot still, with the winery’s top-of-the-line Perle chardonnay, then aged for three years in Hungarian oak barrels. The amber-toned brandy has a floral, grapy aroma and a light smoothness, hinting of toffee and orange, on the palate.

Wölffer Brandy, $75 for 375 milliliters at Wölffer Estate Vineyards, 139 Sagg Road, Sagaponack, N.Y., 631-537-5106,; $65.99 at Domaine Franey, 459 Pantigo Road, East Hampton, N.Y., 631-324-0906,, shipping only within New York State.
