The Long Island Wine Council is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization dedicated to protecting, promoting and advocating on behalf of its members. Our vision is to unite our community in an effort to establish the Long Island as a world-class destination for premium wine.

The region generates about a half a million cases of wine per year, that are distributed both domestically and internationally.

Whether benefiting from our active regional marketing, business operation and training programs, or lobbing considerations, our members benefit from being connected together as a single powerful voice on behalf of the region.
Ultimately, our organization is only successful when our members realize success.
