Paumanok Vineyards took home the Winery of the Year Award at the 2015 New York Wine and Food Classic marking the third year in a row a Long Island wine producer has won the coveted prize.
The Aquebogue vineyard also won “Best White Wine” for its 2014 semi-dry riesling.
“I am happy to congratulate the winners of today’s Governor’s Cup, and I encourage all New Yorkers to sample some of our state’s best food and beverages. You won’t be disappointed,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement.
