Macari Vineyards, located on the North Fork of Eastern Long Island in Mattituck, New York is owned and operated by the Macari Family. What were once potato fields and farmland has become a vineyard of 180 acres of vines with additional fields of compost, farmland, and a home to cows, goats, Sicilian donkeys and ducks. Macari is on the cutting edge of viticulture and is dedicated to a more natural approach to winemaking. Joseph Macari, Jr. is recognized as a pioneer in the movement towards organic and sustainable farming on Long Island, employing principles of biodynamic farming since the vineyard’s first plantings. Extensive soil preparation, rich composts, careful cover cropping and a consideration to wildlife and terrain makes Macari's 180 planted acres stand out from the rest. Taking into account the health of the environment as a whole, and moving away from the harmful effects of pesticides to a more natural and meticulous caretaking of the soil and plants, ultimately yields premium wines.
This gift set offers great value. You get the complete set for the price of the bottle of wine alone. It's like getting the rest free. This Silver Medal winning New York wine has also received an 89 point rating from Wine Spectator magazine who said "Macari 2003 Reserve Barrel Fermented Chardonnay - Full-bodied, with soft flavors of vanilla, butterscotch and pear and enough acidity for balance. Spicy, honeyed finish."
