On his first-ever trip to the North Fork, Randy Frankel fell in love with the region’s serenity, beauty, and purpose, and purchased Shinn Estate Vineyards.


When Randy Frankel first visited the North Fork nearly four years ago, he immediately felt a connection.

So much so that he put down roots right away. “I bought Shinn Estate Vineyards the first day I was there; that’s how much I fell in love with the North Fork and the East End,” Frankel said.

We have always believed that great friends, great food, and great wine are essential to a great life. We are delighted to share our beautiful vineyard and farmhouse inn—which we call home—with you. Fresh ideas, energy, and enthusiasm mean that the future of Shinn Estate is looking incredibly bright.
