Our goals are to create wines that people will enjoy and look for, to produce blends with an appealing sequence of aromas and flavors, to preserve the fruit aromas and freshness of the grapes, and to emphasize the volume and mouthfeel of the wines.
We take great pride in our research and work to refine our blends and make great wine. From France, we inherit tradition and experience. From America, we inherit the freedom to create something new from our locally grown grape varietals.
The Bouké and Bouquet wine experience begins with monitoring the grape quality in the vineyard, discussing pruning, and sampling the maturity of the grapes to determine an optimum picking date. We start with high-quality grapes from trusted sources, where we have full knowledge of the quality and age of their vines, grapes, vineyard practices and management.
We combine traditional winemaking with top-of-the-line equipment and technology. Our wines are produced at a state-of-the-art custom crush facility in Mattituck with a complete array of crush pads, tank room, barrel room, equipment and laboratory analysis. The facility has a professional cellar staff and laboratory services. Every lot has its own tanks and barrels. We carefully monitor grapes from start to finished wines, and taste and discuss the merits each blend all year.
We believe that our careful attention to details and adherence to a house style showcases the best of New York terroir with the time-honored traditions of French quality.
