Clovis Point Vineyard & Winery
When the founders of Clovis Point Vineyard & Winery first laid eyes on the 10-acre plot of North Fork farmland, they knew they had found the perfect spot to transform their vision of a boutique winery into a reality. The plot hit everything on their checklist—sun-swept fields, accessibility, and a picturesque 1920s potato barn that would later be transformed into a tasting room complete with mahogany doors, bluestone floors, and a heated patio overlooking the vineyards. The barn isn't Clovis Point Vineyard & Winery's only nod to the past. According to the New York Times, which lauds the winery as “emblematic of the versatility of some East End boutiques,” the name stems from stone spear tips believed to originate from the Clovis people, a tribe of Indians who inhabited North Fork during the Paleolithic Age.
Today, the winery has grown to span 15 acres of merlot, cabernet franc, and chardonnay vines, which winemaker John Leo ferments into award-winning wines. He also maintains the founders' original vision of keeping production on a smaller scale, producing only 2,000 cases per year to ensure that each bottle has the interesting flavors and easy-going personality reflective of its small-town upbringing.
