For over 13 generations the Harbes Family has been tilling the fertile soils of Long Island. Their ability to find new ways to use agricultural resources has helped them thrive in a rapidly changing world. Although better known for super-sweet corn and family events such as the Summer and Fall Festivals, the Harbes family began a promising venture with wine in 2003.
The main Tasting Room is located directly behind the Mattituck farmstand in our recently renovated potato barn. The barn is over 100 years old and offers an authentic rustic atmosphere. There is also a lot of history to uncover in the tasting room. There are very few vineyards that offer a full day of family fun as well as high quality award winning wines. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will introduce you to our family of wines and help you pick your favorite!
During the Fall season our wines are offered at all of our farm locations including our Apple Orchard (address) and Jamesport Farm (address). You can enjoy our wines anywhere on our property whether you're pumpkin picking or trekking through a corn maze.
As the North Fork’s first certified sustainable vineyard, we’re dedicated to ensuring maximum quality in all our estate wines. In 2003 the vineyard was planted on a boulder-strewn, south-facing hill near the coast of the Long Island Sound. On the surface is fine sandy loam, but underneath is a layer of rocks and silt, ideal for producing the finest vinifera on Long Island. Meticulous research of the finest vinifera clones of Chardonnay and Merlot resulted in a carefully chosen selection of outstanding French clones that were planted to produce the most aromatic and flavorful wine.
With the careful attention of vineyard manager Edward Harbes IV, the vines are producing among the most promising wines on the North Fork. The Harbes Family strives to capture the best of farm and family and is excited to share their award winning wines.
Harbes is family-friendly and fun for the whole family.
