Begin your visit to the North Fork with a wine tasting at The Lenz Winery. Celebrating over 40 years of crafting fine wine, Lenz wines consistently earn 90 and above ratings from notable wine experts like The Wine Advocate. Reds, whites, rosés, dessert and even bubbly, Lenz has it all. Work on your bucket list and taste our Gewürztraminer, featured in the book, 1001 Wines You Must Taste Before You Die.
Lenz is distinctive in that we primarily focus on varietal wines. We have some of the oldest vines in the country and it shows in the rich flavor profiles of our wines. Learn to identify the characteristics of merlot by trying one in its purest form. Lenz wines offered for tasting include chardonnay, gewürztraminer, pinot gris, sauvignon blanc, cuvée (sparkling pinot noir), rosé, cabernet sauvignon, malbec, and merlot.
At Lenz, it is all about you! Whether you are new to wine or a wine aficionado, we look forward to taking you through a flight of our wines. Relax in our beautiful courtyard and enjoy a tasting with one of our many knowledgeable wine associates. We offer two standard flights, one inspired by the season and one that features a selection of our top tier wines. However, one of the best things about visiting Lenz is that we strive to make your visit to Lenz greater than expected. In that vein, we encourage you to go off the flight and explore some of the other wines in the Lenz portfolio. Let us know your favorites and we will customize the flight for you.

See where it all begins! At Lenz, we only make wine from grapes we grow in our vineyards. Why is this important? Wine is only as good as its ingredients. Lenz has some of the oldest vines in the country. Discover the difference older vines make in the quality of the fruit and flavor of the resulting wine. There is something to see in the vineyard during every season; so, always take the tour and follow the progress of your favorite varietal from bud to bottle.
Ever wondered how many grapes you get from one vine? Or what color rosé grapes might be? Sign up for a vineyard tour with one of our Lenz associates and get all those questions answered. Walk through the rows of your favorite varietals: merlot, cabernet, chardonnay, pinot gris. Your tour also includes a custom flight of Lenz wines. Tours offered at 1:00pm on Saturdays, May through September. Reservations required.
Want more? Of course you do! Extend your stay. After your tour and tasting, enjoy your lunch in our courtyard. Lenz has partnered with local restaurant, Rustic Root Kitchen, to offer a selection of tasty salads, sandwiches and small bites to complement a glass of Lenz wine. All lunches must be pre-ordered.
