About Shinn Estate

Shinn Estate Vineyards is small and humble. Our philosophy is that growing grapes for great wine is a blend of science, art, and folk wisdom. Set in a 125-year-old barn, our winery provides us with a sense of peacefulness that has been passed down by generations of farmers. It is filled with natural light and is constructed in a way that allows us to handle fruit utilizing the gift of gravity.

The cellar, where we age our wines, is set apart from the winery building in a quiet barn that was constructed from reclaimed, first-growth, ancient heartwood pine. The cellar roof supports solar panels that, along with a wind turbine, produces all of the energy used for the winery, cellar, vineyard, and farmhouse inn. 

This is Shinn Estate Vineyards: history, heart, and hope for what lies ahead. With a nod to the past and a vision for the future, we are a comprehensive experience of winery and inn that incorporates great wine and great hospitality on the North Fork of Long Island.
