I have been visiting wineries across USA, Canada & France and never have I had such indifferent service from a winery. They do not allow groups of larger than 4 to sit inside ( We were a group of 8..with deep pockets). Not only did we have to sit at picnic tables outside in the stifling heat, but we essentially bought our tasting bottles, carted them outside ourselves and no tasting notes/history provided.

The interior is lovely - was empty when we were there so I am not sure why they cannot accommodate groups - and the wines were rather good. The overall attitude soured the experience.

The COVID-19 precautions here are a bit more severe than many other wineries and it made the visit seem a little distant and cold. Wines are really nice, spectacular view from the outside seating areas. There were about a hundred millennial types visiting and two wedding parties so it seemed a little less quiet and relaxed than it just usually be but still wonderful.

Kontokosta winery is unique because it’s on the beach. The vineyard is on a bluff overlooking the sound. We went on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed a bottle of wine-they have eliminated wine tastings, so you have to buy bottles to enjoy with cheese and crackers. We sat outside on the porch with a view of the vineyard, then walked to the bluff to view the water.

If you are frequent visitor of vineyards on the North Fork I would have to put a buyer beware warning on this vineyard. My husband and I, along with another couple visited 6 vineyards over two days this past weekend. We are members at three places and are well versed in visiting the area. This was our first visit here and I would not recommend it. They have a policy in place for COVID that in order to visit you must have a reservation; which I am a huge fan us BUT... their reservation system is nothing but a cover charge. We had a reservation for Saturday at 4PM. Right off the start we had trouble finding parking, not shocking then to walk in and find a tasting room that was uncomfortably busy. The hostess was less than welcoming, handed us four classes and told us to get on line for wine. We waited in a line for 20 minutes and were offered zero information on the wine. We knew we couldn't taste but there was no history of the wine, walk through of the tasting notes, nothing. Once we made our choices we went outside to escape the crowds and found an open picnic table on the field. Again, crowded and seating was very limited. Bottom line, if you make a reservation you expect to be accommodated. The money you pay to reserve gets you nothing but admission to an uncomfortable, lack of educational and hospitable experience.

Prob one of the worst insensitive pompous places i have ever been, winery and all. As soon as we walked in, after visiting two other wineries, macari and paumonok, we were treated like underlings, exclaiming that its $5 each just to be there...just to be there!! And then Toni with a really bad attitude even asked for our designated driver to pay $5. Worst experience, and just a bad taste , there is a proper way to advise people, especially on a slow Monday afternoon. Never felt welcomed at all.

We paid $10 per person to enter. Usually in wineries, an upfront cost like this covers the wine tasting and someone to explain the wines to you.
Here, we entered only to find out that we could only buy wines by the bottle! What a scam! Additionally, there was no tour, no person giving you information about the wines or winery, NOTHING!
We even bought cheese thinking it would come out nicely but it was just messily thrown into cheap to-go containers.
Total scam with the excuse of “Covid.” Even the staff was very unfriendly when we complained.
Go to a different vineyard is my recommendation!

Make sure to check your receipt. This place up charges you. We ordered the 2016 Cabernet Franc ($29) and was charged for the Cabernet Sauvignon ($34). Unfortunately we drank on empty stomachs, and after 1 bottle were so buzzed, we signed the receipt without reviewing it first. AND, we tipped on top of that! I doubt that this is the first time that this has happened at this place. Perhaps they rely on people being too tipsy to notice. I guess charging an entrance fee isn’t enough during Covid times.

They have a reservation policy, $5 per person and a Logo Glass is included, so I make the reservation, go to the winery where the sign at the door restates the $5 policy with wine glass. Now I don’t need a wine glass , all kinds of places are charging a fee for something or other, but ……There is no glass. It’s $5 so who cares, but geeez don’t lie to me. I asked hey what happened to the glass…The guy at the door says we ran out so we lowered the cover ask,,,what’s the $5 for then? Cover charge is all he says. Well the sign outside the enter ace says $5 includes glass. I would have left it alone but on the way out a man asked the same thing , he says hey isn’t there a glass as his wife handed over the credit card for the cover for 4 people. He is told no glass it’s Just a cover. The man is feeling taken so he says nooooo, never mind I’m out. The man at the door says s sorry cover charge is non refundable. It’s probably somewhat true but it screams SCAM . Is it worth is for $5 Kotokosta??

We paid $10 per person for the reservation to enter the vineyard even though they are not giving tours of the cellar. We understand that the indoor tours are not happening and that’s okay but they could adapt to the circumstances and since they are still charging to enter the property, they could at least give a small tour outdoors and tell the visitors about the vineyard or the wine making process. In other vineyards, they are offering wine tasting sessions but not on this one. We then also paid for 2 wine bottles plus cheese, meat and crackers. We did spend some money so we did not understand this $10 fee as we did not have any sort ot tour. We would have liked that. This would be a great thing to attract more visitors in the fall/winter months. We visited them on 10/26.

We were disappointed with our experience. The $10 fee is just an entrance fee like going to a club. We were expecting an educational tour teaching us about the different wines, the process, history etc. This was our experience on several wine tours in California and Europe. After the $10 fee, you have to pay another $10 to fill up your glass. When asked if they did more education, the representative rudely said, 'no it's just an entrance fee. Here's your glass...' Not professional.

The location and wine are great! The experience was disappointing.
