Yeah yeah. I’m the Long Island wine blogger. You come here expecting to read about Long Island wines — the good, the bad and the ugly. But, it’s not like I’m the only wine blogger writing about Long Island wines.

This week, two other blogs have trained their tongues and keyboards on Long Island wine.

First, Ruuari over at Grape Thinking tastes and blogs about Wolffer Estate Vineyards’ 2005 La Ferme Martin chardonnay. Who knew he could even get Long Island wine in Georgia? I’m glad he could, and of course appreciate the tip of the cap towards my blog as inspiration.

Secondly, Alder of Vinography — the wine blog — finally got around to tasting a bottle of Raphael 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon I gave him two summers ago. And you know I wouldn’t point you to it if he didn’t dig the wine.

I know that it can be frustrating for people outside of New York (or even in New York) to get their hands on these wines, but I hope these types of posts prove that they can be worth the effort.
