Hargrave Vineyard became Long Island's first vineyard in 1973, thus giving birth to what would become a wine region. Today, it's hard to find a wine store on Long Island that doesn't have a section dedicated to local products. According to the Long Island Wine Council's website, the region creates more than 500,000 cases of wine each year.(Credit: David Reich-Hale )
