“Passionate about it!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Lisa and Anthony Sannino are passionate about their job. We spent a wonderful afternoon learning the fine points of wine growing, making, blending and bottling. Anthony is knowledgeable but good humored making the experience fun while informative. We had a group of thirteen friends blending wine, making private labels, sipping great wine, enjoying a lovely luncheon and having more than a few laughs. Cannot say enough about this beautiful winery and great people...don't miss it!

“Small, but Worth It.”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Don't be put off by how small or laid back the place is. Anthony puts great detail into his tour, which is more like an educational seminar. We were lucky enough to come on a slow day and have a private tour. You taste each wine in process and also do some cheese pairings. You definitely leave more knowledgeable about local varietals and get a healthy dose of tastings. Highly recommended.

“A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Yesterday we visited friends who live in Mattituck. They took us to Bella Vita Vineyard. What a pleasant experience! The owner Anthony and Lisa are so friendly and knowledgeable. They took the time to explain each and every wine to us. And then Anthony showed us around. We saw where the barrel of wines are kept and the room where the wine is made.

After our wine tasting - we sat outside on the many picnic tables and enjoyed a bottle of Merlot - with some cheese and crackers. There was also music playing. That was just an added benefit.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend this winery. If you are looking for a quaint, friendly, comfortable winery to visit to enjoy delicious tasting wine and learn about the wine made at this vineyard, this is the place for you!

It truly is a Wonderful Life!

“A Great Experience”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We're so glad we picked this vineyard to tour. With all the LI vineyard choices it was hard to narrow one down but the description of Sannino's prompted us to book a tour here. We were satisfied beyond our expectations. Anthony was our tour host and was wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about winemaking. The tour was detailed, informative and fun, and the staff was friendly and made you feel welcomed as soon as you walked in. The complimentary wine tastings and cheese platter was a nice inclusion in the tour's price. Thank you for a great experience! Jeanette & Jim

“Great""”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Great wine, great people, awesome experience. This was our first trip to the vineyards and it was an amazing experience. Anthony and Lisa are two of the nicest people we ever met. We stayed at the b & b owned by them and it was truly beautiful. Lisa treated us like royalty at the vineyard giving us a private wine and cheese tasting. Then we went on the group tour with Anthony. He is very knowledgeable and makes it fun and entertaining. The price of the b & b seems expensive but it is really worth and we definitely be going back in the future.
