Shinn Estate good but could be better.

We stopped in on our LI wine tour. Got a chance to meet one of the owners. He is an accomplished chef as well as a vintner. Took the time to explain the history of how he ended up on Long Island and started Shinn Vineyards with his wife. We toured the barrel room and the Library. I would love... More

We have visited Shinn Estate twice now. We found improvement in the wines from the first time we went. The wines are just ok. They lack the depth of some of the other wineries on the North Fork. The tasting room is different. Nice outside seating if the day is not too hot. The servers were attentive and nice.

Shinn Winery is off the beaten path and a hidden gem. Absolutely lovely setting with great tasting wine. The owner was there and spoke to all visitors, the servers were friendly and pleasant. Would highly recommend !

I read some of these reviews prior to a visit for wine tasting and I have to say that our experience was an absolute delight! Polar opposite of finding any staff or owner snotty or unprepared. The tasting room staff were welcoming and kind. The menu was so thoroughly explained that I felt comfortable allowing the staff to choose our... More

You can refer to my longer review where I cover in detail our experience with the B&B and winery but in brief the vineyard itself is a wonderful getaway to sample great quality wines. The decor of the tasting room is part barnyard, part someone's backyard. It was very cozy and inviting with wonderful views of the vineyard itself. You... More

First, let me start off that I was very excited to go to Shinn and take part in their tour and enjoy their wines. I wouldn’t really call it a tour though, as we literally sat on picnic tables in the production room and he did not talk one bit about their processes, except for when asked (very late in... More

Beautiful setting. Server John was excellent. Owner...seems like he intimidates his staff. Made us all feel very uncomfortable. Wine was ok....nothing exceptional.

Small winery, off the beaten path. Quiet tasting room. Lovely people. Excellent wine. Rarely do I go to a vineyard, taste 5 wines and like them all! Even bought a bottle to take home!!

I really enjoy the atmosphere of Shinn Estate. Its an eco friendly, rustic vibe in the tasting room, one that reflect their growing practices. This was my second time there, my husband and I stopped there around 10:45 am on our way back from Greenport. Their tasting room was already open, and because we were so early we were the... More

They have indoor and outdoor tasting space. The wines are well crafted, and there are small snacks available, and tours. The staff are knowledgeable about the wines and cheerful even in the face of a crowd. It was a very pleasant afternoon.
