Words on Premium

I have an article on Premium Wine Group in the Fall issue of Edible East End magazine. It’s the one currently on the street now with the Brussels sprouts on the stock quote pages on the cover.

At right is Russell Hearn, co founder of Premium, the only custom crush operation east of the Mississippi, right here in Mattituck on the North Fork.

From the article:

Premium opened in 2000 with nine cutomers and processed 545 tons of fruit to create approximately 360,000 bottles of wine. In 2007 they had 15 customers and turned 1,093 tons of grapes into 740,00 bottles.

I just quoted myself.

    Saw the article over the weekend…nicely done.

    Every time I’m there I’m fascinated by the number of other wineries (who don’t want it publicized) who make their wine there.

    There is even at least one Finger Lakes “winery” that makes its wine down here.
