It's altogether fitting that, when Long Island's oldest and most respected winery was up for sale, it caught the eye of a cosmopolitan Philadelphia couple who loved wine, had a respect for tradition and whose own noble roots date back to medieval Italy.


In 1999, the first vineyard on the North Fork was in the creative hands of Prince Marco and Princess Ann Marie Borghese, who renamed it Castello di Borghese –Castle of the Borgheses. The 2013 season marked the 40th anniversary of this founding vineyard of the Long Island wine industry. Their children, Fernando, Giovanni and Allegra continue to apply new levels of energy, watching the vineyard evolve under their stewardship.


Winners of numerous international awards, Castello di Borghese Vineyard has earned widespread respect. With a microclimate comparable to the Bordeaux region of France, the East End of Long Island provides a lush environment to grow some of the world’s best French grape varietals. We invite you to our tasting room to meet our team of experts and join the Borghese experience.
