Del Vino Vineyards Announces the Planting of Vines at their Second Vineyard
DEL VINO EAST
Our Northport-based vineyard provides an expanded estate growing footprint in Riverhead, New York and opportunity for more grape growing and a new tasting room location.
In June 2022, our family vineyard announced they we closed on the purchase of the Krupski Farm, a 30-acre property of pastureland land which is agriculturally preserved that will be converted to into a vineyard. The property, nestled between Sound Ave & Northville TPKE, Riverhead, has been owned by prominent local farmers since 1966.
This purchase adds valuable acres to Del Vino Vineyards wine growing footprint in the Long Island region, which aligns with one of the company’s long-term strategies of becoming more vertically integrated by farming more fruit from their own vineyards. In addition to the farming land, Del Vino Vineyards plans to operate as a new tasting room destination, likely opening sometime in 2024.
“We believe in building a wine company that invests back into the community and the industry that it's a part of. Bringing the Krupski Family Farm into our portfolio shifts us towards having the majority of our production coming from our own vineyards, which is a huge part of our long-term vision,” said Fred Giachetti, Owner of Del Vineyard Vineyards. “The vineyard management team at Del Vino Vineyards has done an exceptional job of maintaining an eye on quality, and we’re incredibly excited about our expansion.”
Lisa Giachetti, Del Vino Vineyards owner commented further, “the Krupski Farm presents an opportunity for us to serve our existing fans in a new location, but it will also allow us to attract and engage new customers in the Long Island Wine Country region, which is an exciting proposition. We’re thrilled to be growing our Del Vino vineyard acreage and our staff with this acquisition.”
