In 2003, Carol Sullivan and Erich Moenius co-founded Gramercy Vineyards
in the emerging wine region of Long Island’s beautiful North Fork. Located in Mattituck, New York. Gramercy aspires to become one of the North Fork’s most sought after producers of Estate Merlot. Blessed with a choice growing site situated on a century old gentleman's farm, Gramercy is now producing a trio of boutique wines that includes a Rosé, an Estate Merlot, and the winery's exclusive Reserve Estate Merlot.
Merlot was chosen not only because of Sullivan and Moenius’ love of the focused, complex wines of Bordeaux appellations like Pomerol and St. Emilion, but also because of the promise and grandeur it has shown in other vineyards on Long Island.
