The Goerler Family – Three Generations and Going Strong
Jamesport Vineyards is a father-son collaboration that began in 1986, making it one of the North Fork’s oldest vineyards. Jamesport Vineyards is one of the only 3rd generation wineries on the North Fork. Ron Jr is now overseeing the operations at Jamesport Vineyards and his children are involved as well. Since Ron Goerler Sr. acquired the 165-year-old barn that houses the winery and tasting room, a lot has changed, both aesthetically and agriculturally. The tasting room has increased to accommodate an ever-growing number of visitors. A full-service kitchen, operating as Little Oak Wood Fired Kitchen now operates year-round, offering wood-fired pizzas and more. Beautifully landscaped, the backyard provides the perfect setting where people gather to enjoy award winning wine and light fare and is a respite from busy lives. Other event spaces throughout the property provide the perfect setting for private parties and small gatherings. In the vineyard, Ron Jr. continues to update plantings with such unique varieties as Albariño, Teroldego and Lagrein. Sustainable viticulture practices ensure the highest quality of fruit available in the region today.
The Goerler’s commitment to provide their guests with a complete wine and food experience is apparent and should not be missed.
The owners and staff of Jamesport Vineyards look forward to seeing you.
The Goerler family are “stewards of the land” practicing sustainable viticulture. This concept of farming grew out of the organic movement and became fine tuned during the late 1980s. Adopting such a practice allows Jamesport Vineyard to meet the needs of today without compromising the ability to successfully harvest the land in the future. Sustainable farming attempts to minimize environmental impacts, ensures long-term economic viability and addresses the societal concerns regarding preserving the land for generations to come. These practices are adhered to throughout the management of winemaking process to include vine growth and fruit production, the control of weeds, insects and disease and soil fertility. It also leads to a safe and healthy work environment.
