Our 12 favorite Long Island wines

Toast-worthy LI wines

With beautiful vistas, great events and lively tastings, Long Island vineyards don't only make for great day trips -- they also produce some top-notch wines.

We charged our discerning critic, Peter M. Gianotti, with sampling a wine list's worth of vintages from local wineries and declaring his most drinkable dozen. These are his 12 favorites.

As for the rest, Gianotti made a case for Long Island: "There are about another 100 that bid fair to be number 13."
